Post Introduction
The 4Saints Team was formed in 2014. Alongside the Team Rector are two stipendiary Team Vicars with an evangelist, an SSM curate (at the end of her curacy though), Reader, Deanery Schools and Youth Worker, a pastoral assistant and hub manager. Each church has its own distinctive style but are broadly open evangelical. They seek to serve in practical ways from social action to be a listening ear. They aim to be in the heart of the community.

Although they currently pay their parish share they acknowledge the challenges of declining congregations and reduced giving. They are seeking in different ways to address and face these challenge through the bigger church bigger difference vision.

The team share much in the way of discipleship and nurture courses and want to develop on the mission activities spurred by a recent diocesan mission event. They are also interested in developing their pastoral care strategy. They are interested in establishing satellite congregations and place a great deal of emphasis on how they can benefit from increasing collaboration between churches.

The team are actively working with seven primary schools and a college in the local community.

exercise a ministry of listening, prayer and healing for the people of St Luke’s to rekindle a vision of hope, growth and mission
explore with the congregation and leaders of St Jude’s a way to find a stable and sustainable future aligned to the vision of growth
develop clergy and licensed team workers by building trust and clarifying roles
develop a sense of identity, collaboration and sustainability among the leadership team
revise the parish profile.

The Ideal Candidate

Our ideal candidate will have:
strong leadership skills
enthusiasm, passion and energy
an ability to communicate well with all ages
humility and self-awareness
a God centred, bible based, spirit filled approach

About Us
For many years we have been working to achieve growth in our diocese. We have used different ways to express this but the aim and direction of travel has remained the same – consistent with the whole of the Church of England. When Bishop Paul was installed he adopted our growth agenda refreshing it by saying ‘we are asking God for a bigger church so we can make a bigger difference; more people knowing Jesus more justice in the world’

This is how we express our mission.

We think we will achieve this mission if we have

100 new congregations
1,000 new leaders
10,000 disciples

to help us do this we are calling every worshipping Christian in our diocese to

sign up to the Bishop of Liverpool’s rule of life which will encourage and support us to Read, Learn, Pray, Give, Serve, Tell
bring 1 friend into the regular worshipping and serving life of the church (bring one friend)
do 10 acts of service or find 10 new points of connection beyond the walls of the church (do ten things).

The four churches that make up the 4Saints Team cover a deprived area of Knowsley six miles to the east of Liverpool City centre. They are seeking an interim Team Rector to lead the clergy and laity to unite behind a vision of seeing a bigger church making a bigger difference. They have an exciting opportunity to lead the team on the next stage of the journey.

The interim appointment is for a period of two years.

With four churches in the team – St Lukes, St Jude’s St Mary’s and St George’s – you will find a great deal of variety. As Team Rector, you will also have primary pastoral responsibility for St Luke’s – with a four bedroom vicarage provided for your use – but you will be working alongside the team to minister to the community.

The community presents many opportunities for mission which includes Knowsley Safari Park and a children’s hospice and Alder Hey Children’s hospital is nearby.

Closing date: 20th October 2019
Interviews: to be confirmed
