Joanne Gisbey Our amazing Children’s Worker Jo Gisbey has been on Maternity Leave this year and has taken the difficult decision not to return to the role.

“I have absolutely loved the role, and my heart remains in the kids work at and through church, but I feel at the moment this is the best decision for me, my family and also for the role of Children’s Worker in the church. I will still be on the Kickstart team and am very happy to contribute when and where I can. I’m not going anywhere!”

Steph Fuller and Mikey Vickery-Brown have been covering aspects of Jo’s role while she has been on leave and will continue until January, but we would like to say a massive “thank you” to Jo, Steph and Mikey for all the investment they have made to our children over their time with us.

However with Jo not returning, we are now recruiting for a Children’s Worker to oversee our work with children including the Mini-Kickstart, Kickstart and Kickstart The Event activities. We are looking for an enthusiastic individual to lead our children’s work for 0-11 year olds as part of the ACCelerate team, with the aim of engaging and inspiring children to follow Jesus, and to have significant involvement in transforming young lives through our community and schools work.

More information about the role is available on the Jobs page here. Please pass this opportunity to your contacts elsewhere and pray that God provides us with the right person for the role.
