Two exciting new vacancies…

Westminster College is excited to announce two full time job vacancies within the teaching staff team.

 

Director of Studies in Church History and Doctrine

Following the move of the current post holder to a URC pastorate we look to appoint a new Director of Studies in Church History and Doctrine.

This is a General Assembly appointment to Westminster College. It is open to lay people and ordained ministers from within the United Reformed Church or from partner denominations within the World Council of Churches. Candidates will have already been awarded a relevant PhD or will be close to completion. You will be excited at joining Westminster in a role that connects Church history more generally to the doctrine and life of the Church, and you will have particular expertise in teaching the Reformed tradition and interests in connecting it to the roots and current realities of the United Reformed Church. Given Westminster’s wider role as one of the United Reformed Church‘s Resource Centres for Learning, you will also have gifts in bringing doctrine and history to life in local congregational settings and amongst lay people. You will be committed to teaching undergraduate and postgraduate programmes through our partner universities of Cambridge, Durham and Anglia Ruskin whilst being equally at home in delivering resources for local church events. You will relish sharing fully in Westminster’s worship and tutorial life, participating fully in our teaching staff team and playing a positive and active role within the wider ecumenical setting of the Cambridge Theological Federation within which Westminster finds its home.

Applications close at 12:00 noon on Friday 3rd March 2017.

 

Director of Church Resource Development

The Governors invite applications for the newly created post of Director of Church Resource Development.

This post, funded from within Westminster’s own resources, continues to build upon our wider Resource Centre for Learning work across the United Reformed Church. It is open to lay people and ordained ministers from within the United Reformed Church or from partner denominations within the World Council of Churches. You will have experience in delivering and developing training for church members, lay preachers, Elders and others in leadership within local congregations. You will be passionate about Christian discipleship in contemporary contexts and eager to help and encourage churches as they equip, sustain and develop their ministries and members. You will be enthusiastic in both responding to the direction set by the denomination and its Synods and a creative innovator able to identify new opportunities for Westminster’s service and work in these areas. You will have gifts in collaboration and will be keen to work not only with the teams at Westminster but with the wider networks of educators and enablers in posts across the denomination. You will not be expected to play more than an occasional part in the academic provision of the college through its undergraduate and postgraduate awards, or in the committees and structures of the Cambridge Theological Federation. But you will be expected to play a full part in the worship and formational life of Westminster. You will focus as much upon being available to deliver material and resources locally as in shaping events that bring people to Westminster. You will have gifts in developing resources for the web and of value to those who must access them at a distance. You will play a key role in helping us engage with and respond to wider United Reformed Church agendas and initiatives for discipleship and formation.
