Children, Youth and Families Minister for Madeley

Over the last five months or so you may well have heard about our plans to recruit a part-time Children, Youth and Families Minister to work in Madeley. We are planning on making use of the Beryl Ikin bequest to part fund the post. We are delighted that Betley now wishes also to fund additional hours for the post.

Alongside this very generous bequest we have launched our 20×22 Vision campaign. Encouraging 22 givers to pledge to donating £20 per month to fund the other part of the salary for the post. At the time of writing, we have just reached 22 pledges, with 21 of these already paid into the fund for the first time. Thank you to all those who have come forward and offered to support this great work. If you’d like to find out more about the scheme please contact Rev Tim or our Treasurer Stephen Clifford.

Our work with children, youth and families is already really good and we would love to see this work grow and develop to its full potential. Our new Children, Youth and Families Minister will work with others to build up the work that already happens at All Saints’. They will also be involved in taking the church forward into new areas of ministry, new ways of engaging with children, young people and their families. There is so much to look forward to!

The Job Description has been written, the practicalities are being handled, like adding a Betley specific section, and we’re heading towards advertising the post. Your prayers are appreciated as we go forwards.

Rev Tim Watson
