Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters, since you know that you will receive an inheritance from the Lord as a reward. It is the Lord Christ you are serving.Colossians 3:23-24
After a few years and on the way to getting over a pandemic, we have a few openings to join our wonderful team!
The Story So Far…
We are a Church of England Church plant in the new build development of Barking Riverside, London. Barking Riverside is an area of huge growth and development with a planned 10,000 homes being built over the next 15 years. Discerning a heart to create a new worshipping community for this area, the Church of England dedicated 6 years of funding from September 2018 – August 2024.
Church at Barking Riverside has emerged as a Christian community with a vision to see Jesus at the heart of every person and every place. We pursue this by being a community committed to creating space for Jesus in our daily lives (through Habits), together (as Hubs), and for others (represented by Hands that pray and love). Our priority is being and making disciples who connect primarily in small communities of 10-12 (Hubs) that also gather in Sunday Celebrations for vision and connection. We actively seek to ‘join in’ with what is already going on within this community and seeing how we can invest, share Jesus, and see disciples emerge in those places. Our driving question is first, “What does it look like for Jesus to be at the heart of this community?” and therefore “Who do we need to be as church to make space for that to happen?”
We have grown to 50 committed people (adults and kids) in 3 established hubs and fortnightly celebrations, with new hubs emerging. We have built relationship with a number of young people with a Youth Hub emerging in January 2022 with 20 young people on the books. At the same time we have a worship band developing and great interest in music amongst people of all generations in our community. We also have a clear call to increase rhythms of Prayer and Intercession, which will include young people and worship.
We are now looking to recruit additional members to join our team to bring leadership and energy to two key areas where we see Jesus moving: amongst Young People; and in Worship and Creative Arts. We also have a space on our board of trustees that is open as well as an internship opportunity.
