Then Pennycross is calling you to bring your enthusiasm and talent for working with young people and their families and help us build on a number of already established and growing relationships with families and young people in our community.

We are looking to appoint someone with experience of working with children and the ability to develop and nurture Christian faith in others in fun and relevant ways.You will be fully supported by our Vision and Mission group that will provide leadership, access to resources and support with introductions and facilitation within our Church community.
