St Peter's House Chaplaincy

Contract:

Permanent

Location:

North West

Salary:

37,000

Ref: JN009799

Job Description

St Peter’s House is the home of the Christian chaplaincy team for the Manchester Universities, RNCM, the University of Law and UA92, and we constantly challenge ourselves to reflect on the question: ‘What does chaplaincy mean to the people around us, and what should it look like in practice?’

 

We’ve developed innovative ways of understanding and ‘doing’ chaplaincy over the last few years, this includes a community cafe (Milk & Honey), a volunteering programme, a Wholeness Studio, Bee Keeping and a Covid-19 response project ‘The Well’.

 

We’re looking for a person to journey with us to work alongside the existing team with three areas of particular focus:

 

  • Developing the ‘deep’ and contextually appropriate model of Christian Community and Discipleship at St. Peters House. This means that we see ourselves as participating in the existing work of the Spirit, acting with hope that God as Love is already at work in the world around us.
  • Leading our Equality, Diversity and Inclusion work, you will champion the voice and visibility of people with protected characteristics and help dismantle any barriers which prevent people engaging with St. Peters House.
  • Overseeing and developing our programme including our ‘Wholeness’ work, and innovatively incorporating wellbeing practices within our Chaplaincy context.

Interview Date: Monday, 28 February


Key Tasks

To contribute actively to the work of the chaplaincy team by:

  • Contributing to the imaginative development of chaplaincy in the University context. 
  • Offering pastoral support and guidance to the Staff and Students of the Universities.
  • Developing Christian discipleship and community for the University community of Manchester.
  • Leading our Diversity, Equality and Inclusion work.
  • Overseeing contextually appropriate discipleship within the University community of Manchester.
  • Being part of an offer of a ‘prophetic’ witness within the Universities, encouraging and gently and responsibly challenging them.
  • Overseeing and developing our programme alongside the SPH team. 
  • Engaging with Higher Education issues and reflecting theologically on them.
