This role is a fantastic opportunity for someone who genuinely desires to contribute to education, training for ministry and the development of vocations, both lay and ordained.

  • Teaching BA level modules to ongoing learners
  • Being part of a close-knit team that works creatively together to deliver ministry training to a varied group of students from around the diocese

The role is for 14 hours a week, requiring a flexible approach to a varied workload.  You will be responsible for creating new resources and modifying existing ones, to continue the delivery of the LMP curriculum under Common Awards, validated by Durham University.  The main teaching hub is on Monday evenings, at Christ’s College, Guildford; but attendance is also required at residential weekends from Friday evening to Sunday afternoon (two per annum), and three Saturday study days per annum. Currently some teaching is being delivered remotely due to Covid-19 restrictions.
