The Islington Associate for Estates is piloting the Estates Course to train local leaders through an 18-month process to become a Commissioned Estate Leader within the London Diocese. Starting from January 2020, they will gather on the second Saturday of each month at St Barnabas Finchley for a morning to learn and grow together. There will also be termly gatherings in a wider setting to inspire and broaden their vision of what God can do.
This is a 7 hour per week role for a fixed-term until 30th September 2020, to administer and coordinate the Estates Course as part of the work of CCX in the Diocese of London and provide administrative support as appropriate for the Islington Associate for Estates. The course will be available to serve people and parishes of any tradition within the Church of England.
This is a new venture and with an annual review. After review, it may be that the course is not run in subsequent years.
The roleholder will report to the Head of Development for Church Planting based at CCX and relate directly with the Islington Associate for Estates, on a day-to-day basis. The postholder may be required to undertake any other duties that are commensurate with the role.
The following experience, skills and abilities are essential for the role:
