Schoolsworker Vacancy

Kent (Tunbridge Wells and Sevenoaks)

Do you have beautiful feet?

Are you ready to be sent to teach young people like Ashley about the Christian Faith

‘Ashley’ is a typical young person in the UK: they are growing up in a non-Christian home, and have no contact with their local church. What hope does ‘Ashley’ have of hearing what Christians believe about Jesus from committed, skilled and passionate followers of Jesus?

‘Ashley’s’ typical school day often starts with an assembly, considering topics such as forgiveness. ‘Ashley’ enjoys RE, and was particularly intrigued by the lesson looking at what Christians believe about the resurrection of Jesus. ‘Ashley’ has started attending a lunchtime club where they can listen to other people’s ideas and beliefs and are able to ask their own questions. They have been exploring the theme ‘God’s Love is…’. ‘Ashley’ now understands, engages with and responds to the Christian faith on a regular basis. ‘Ashley’ attends a school where crossteach leads these various activities.

How can we teach young people about the Christian faith unless people with ‘beautiful feet’ are being sent into schools? Do you want to be part of a team that teaches young people like ‘Ashley’ about the Christian faith on a regular basis? Do you have beautiful feet?

Schoolsworkers needed for Kent (Tunbridge Wells and Sevenoaks).

“How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news!”

We believe God is calling Christian teachers to go where young people are to help them understand, engage with and respond to the Christian Faith.

Are you an authentic and passionate Christian with proven teaching gifts and skills (in a UK school or UK church setting)? Do you love working in a team and have a servant-heart? Do you understand that an ambassador of Christ needs to have integrity and be able to build positive relationships with all stakeholders?

If you can answer ‘yes’ to these questions, then please do get in touch to discuss the opportunities there are to join our team and have regular opportunities to teach about the Christian faith in schools.
