Parish Administrator

Christ Church W4, Chiswick

About Christ Church W4:
Christ Church W4 is a community of people wanting to see a touch of heaven on earth. We are a very active church with a wide impact. We see a continual flow of people through London and through our church who was can engage with the Gospel, mobilise, equip and release into impacting the wider world.

About the role:
The Administrator will be right at the heart of the church, supporting the Vicar directly and (depending on experience and gifting) part of our Senior Management Team. We already have good Facilities and Ops people in place so this role is released to focus on the direct
ministry aspects of the church.

What we are looking for:
Someone who can be the pulse taker for the Beating Heart of the church, who gets on well with the job, understands systems and people, can spot where something might go wrong and fix it (or find someone else to fix it) without being overwhelmed by the task. They will be efficient, love ad-ministry, love God and his church and delight in finding simple ways to solve problems.

Vision for the job:
Christ Church W4 has been on an exciting journey. We are blessed to have new people join us most weeks. God is on the move and there is a call to prayer and to action. People are stirring and coming to faith. People are willing to step up to serve. The Administrator is the unseen hero who holds this all together and enables others to step out, flourish and grow. They spot the new people and help them find ways to connect, serve and belong. They help the vicar and other clergy communicate well, see trends and make interventions where necessary. They get on with nuts and bolts routine work knowing that each person they email, rota, phone or write to is part of the bigger story of what God is doing at Christ Church W4. They are on a mission.

It is not always an easy task, but it is a key one.There are times in the year when it gets really busy, and times when there is much less on. There are times when it feels like you’re dropping balls, and times when you know you’ve made a key difference in someone’s life and journey to God.

This is one of the most important roles in our church. If God is stirring you for this task please get in touch...
