Rising Generations Pastor – Basingstoke Church

Basingstoke Church’s vision with Rising Generations is to pastor and support young people through this crucial time of life, by meeting them in the way that works for them. They do this by having a team that spans all ages from 0-18, so that as soon as a child is ready to go deeper in faith, fun and discipleship, they are ready to support them.

Your Responsibilities Will Include:

  • Working with the Rising Generations Lead to plan and then facilitate new models of children’s and youth ministry in the church that are appropriate for the current rising generation and align with the ministry focus of the Resource Church
  • Supporting the church’s vision for engagement with 0-18yr olds and their families in local communities, with a focus on the South Ham and Brighton Hill estates
  • Encouraging, supporting and, alongside the Rising Generations lead, helping to train a team of volunteers to deliver Rising Generations ministry
  • Helping to plan for, and facilitate, children’s and youth groups at and around selected Sunday services
  • Helping to lead holiday camps and other stand-alone rising generation community outreach events
  • Building and maintaining links with local schools and colleges
  • Delivering of assemblies, lessons and break clubs where they can build relationship with the school teachers and students, creating a bridge into the life and worship of the church
  • Supporting and encouraging the rising generation to grow in their faith, knowledge of the Bible, understanding of being a disciple of Jesus, awareness and capacity to live a spirit-led life, and to become active members of their local church family
  • Ensuring that effective administration and record keeping is maintained for all aspects of the work
  • Supporting the Rising Generations Lead in ensuring good safeguarding practices are fully embedded in the Church’s Rising Generations work, including regular training for volunteers

Basingstoke Church is one church across four locations in the town of Basingstoke. The church has existed for hundreds of years, but last summer a new season started as the church was designated as a Resource
Church with the aim of reaching the missing generations across the town.
