Could you make a real difference to the lives of vulnerable young people (16-25) in Brighton and Hove?
We are currently looking for volunteer chaplains to help run an informal weekly chaplaincy evening to support the residents of Lansworth House in Hove.
This is a supported housing project run by YMCA DownsLink group which houses 18 young people. These young people are usually homeless – i.e. they cannot live at home or do not have a home for a variety of reasons.
Our work is challenging but Lansworth House is a place where young people can get support and encouragement to turn their lives around.
Could you be a volunteer chaplain and add real value to the work we do? We are looking for people of faith who are kind, good listeners, non-judgemental, with a sense of humour and a love of young people. You would work in a small team, and have some training and support. Our chaplaincy service has been established at Lansworth House for 4 months and we are now expanding the team of chaplains. You can find the role description here.
Chaplaincy takes place on Wednesday evenings from 6.00-8.00pm. We would ask for a commitment of one evening every 2-3 weeks.
Interested? Contact Lucy McGrath, Lead Chaplain on 01273 222563 or firstname.lastname@example.org

Deanery of Brighton
The Bishop of Chichester is seeking to appoint a missional priest to love this needy parish into life.
- Population of the parish is just over 15,000
- It is currently made up of three churches in a single parish, one of which has been scarcely used but is now ready for a missional relaunch.
- Sussex university is in the parish and many students live here although none attend the churches
- The Amex (home to Brighton & Hove Albion) is on the edge of the parish
- It ranks 716 out of 12,599 in the list of most deprived in the country.
- Worshipping tradition is Anglo-Catholic.
- Congregation numbers around 40 on a Sunday at St Andrews and 40 at St Mary Magdalen.
After consulting with the PCC and with the Church Army, there is now the exciting possibility of establishing a Centre for Mission in this benefice. Following the appointment of the priest-in-charge, we are developing a proposal to appoint two Church army officers who will form a new team to seek the renewal of apostolic life in the parish.
We are praying for a down-to-earth, passionate priest to lead the parish into this next chapter.
Closing date Monday 6th November 2017

St Symphorian’s Church, Worthing, West Sussex
St Symphorian’s is a friendly and active parish in Worthing. The musical provision is modest, though enthusiastic. We require an organist who will assist in enriching the musical and liturgical life of the church.
The instrument is a 2-manual Gray & Davison and is well maintained. Your commitment would be to play for our 10am Sung Mass on Sundays as well as a few other solemnities and special services during the year as well as occasional offices where possible. Cover, when necessary, isn’t hard to arrange as we have a retired organist in the congregation. Remuneration: £2,500 p.a.
Contact: Father Ben Eadon, Priest in Charge, for more information: email@example.com or 01903 694 827.
