Poole, Dorset
Job description

Do you want to see peoples lives transformed by God bringing healing and hope? We have come together from different backgrounds and Christian denominations to welcome people to a safe place where they can receive prayer, healing, teaching and find rest and friendship. Our resident community along with the wider team provide hospitality seeking to grow in our own walk with God and encourage others to do the same. Our Christian retreat, conference and holiday centre is a 20 minute walk from 13 miles of sandy beaches on the Dorset South Coast.

How can you help us achieve our vision of 'Growing Christian Disciples'? Although words are important what so often speaks to our guests is our love and service. They see Jesus through our acts of service and willingness to put others before ourselves. We seek to build a sense of community where people feel they are coming into our family and our home. Our resident community are an essential part of that welcome, that sense of family.

What sort of person are we looking for? Someone who above all else wants to grow in their own faith and help others to do the same. You need to have a sense of calling to be here – ie a sense that this is where God wants you at this time. You are joining a community and need to be committed to meeting and seeking God as a community and wider team. You will need to be willing to serve and help out wherever needed although we do seek to place people on the teams they are most suited to, not just where there is a need.

What do we ask of you? We ask for 30 hours service each week. Often this involves housekeeping, washing up, laying tables, serving at meal times, spending time with guests, helping welcome guests or covering reception. It may also involve helping in the gardens or painting. You will expected to join in with times of prayer and worship together as a community and spend time on your own regularly praying and reading the Bible.

What do we offer you? We offer a supportive and prayerful environment and if you feel it would be helpful, coaching or mentoring. We offer times of worship and prayer as a team and resident community. Accommodation, meals and expenses are provided. You will have two days off a week and additional time off for holidays. This is an ideal ‘time out’ to give you time to reflect on where God may be leading you next and how he may want you to grow.

How long can I come for? We ask that people come for a minimum of 3 months as it takes time to settle in. We would normally suggest a maximum of one year initially with the possibility of extending this where appropriate.
