An Exciting BMO In The City Centre Of Coventry

Job Description

Urban Hope is a relatively young pioneer church formed 7 years ago to reach people (especially the vulnerable and isolated) in the centre of Coventry - an increasingly vibrant and progressive city. The church operates primarily from a coffee shop in the city centre arcade, and has grown to over 100 people across the various services,

and who enthuse about their ‘different’ styles of church.


We would welcome candidates who are:


  • Prayerful and passionate about Jesus, with a heart to reach out to a wide range of people including the most vulnerable. This will include the need for excellent Safeguarding skills, and ideally with community development , social work, or other related experience of working with vulnerable people and groups.


  • Creative and inspiring leaders of worship which is accessible to vulnerable people without any previous church background.


  • Empowering leaders, developing those who are often initially lacking in self-confidence and aspiration.


  • Ready to take on the challenge of a church in a pioneering context like Urban Hope – a church without a typical church building, without ‘typical’ church people, and without a lot of financial clout!


  • Welcoming, compassionate, fun loving and friendly, good at forming relationships with a wide range of people. This would ensure the continuation of one of the church’s strongest qualities, and live up to its name – URBAN HOPE!
