Could you make a difference in the Tynedale Circuit?
Are you looking for a new opportunity?
Could you be part of the new Enabling Services team?

The Tynedale Circuit is a large and vibrant group of Methodist Churches seeking to worship and serve God. The Circuit's commitment across Tynedale is to see vibrant Christian communities which introduce people to life in the Kingdom of God and help people to live as followers of Jesus Christ.

As part of achieving its vision the Circuit is establishing an enabling services team. This team will lead, co-ordinate and deliver the enabling services which are needed to help the Circuit achieve its vision. These enabling services include Property, GDPR, Governance, Communications, Administration, Finance, Compliance, Legal, Charity Registration, Safeguarding.

The team will deliver these services for the Circuit itself and enable them in the local churches of the circuit. The team will include paid members of staff and volunteers and be led by the employed Enabling Services Manager. The team will work closely with the Circuit Ministers and Circuit Stewards in particular ensuring the Circuit Ministers are released from administrative tasks so they can be free for missional and pastoral ministry.

The Circuit is currently recruiting for two roles in the Enabling Services Team. These roles are initially for a fixed term until 31st August 2022. During this period the Enabling Services Team will be established and a review of the Circuit's pastoral staffing will take place. The circuit intends both these roles to continue beyond August 2022 but the tasks and hours for the roles will be reviewed once the team is established and the wider staffing review has taken place, hence why they are currently fixed term appointments.
