This will be an exciting and innovative post as we seek to build relationships with children and families in the Driffield area. As a new post this offers an opportunity to begin from scratch to offer outreach to families in exciting and innovative ways. Our work with children and families in the Driffield area has been much curtailed in recent years because of the building we occupied and its lack of accessible accommodation.

Now we are in our new building we are ready to start to build our ministry within the town to accommodate the needs of our children and families.

The Covid 19 crisis has forced the Church to look beyond traditional forms of communication with its members and we expect that the Post Holder will be able to replicate and extend these new ways of communication to engage children and families. There will be an expectation that the Post Holder will work with the Minister and Church community to set up and develop initiatives which will offer a sense of belonging to young singles, couples and families and support the vision of an open and inclusive Christian Community.

The post is a fixed term part time post for three years.
