Job Description

This key role is central to the Diocesan strategy, ELY2025. We are looking for an entrepreneur to promote and embed Fresh Expressions of Church across all parishes in the Diocese.

As Fresh Expressions of Church & Pioneer Adviser, your key responsibilities will be to:

  • Work with local parish leaders, lay and ordained, to create as many new communities as those existing by 2025.
  • Promote, equip & embed pioneering at all levels - those in training, ordained and lay ministers.
  • Inspire, train & enable those already working in Fresh Expressions of Church.
  • Contribute to the strategic development of Mission in the Diocese by working with Diocesan Officers, in particular with the Bishops Change Officer for Market Towns.
