St George’s has a young, dynamic, talented staff team, focused on growth. As might be expected in a large church, there is a significant management component to the Associate Rector role, with a focus on releasing and resourcing ministry and mission, and raising up leaders. The full time Associate Rector will oversee all our regular ministries, including line managing the worship pastor, student pastor (who manages our international student worker), part time pastoral care minister, volunteer Alpha course leader, and in due course the curate (who oversees the children’s worker and youth worker). Small groups/networks and leadership development is overseen by the part time Associate Rector.
