  • YMCA volunteer chaplains - Horsham Y Centre

    Type: Other By: Diocese of Chichester When:

    Could you make a real difference to the lives of vulnerable young people at Horsham Y Centre (YMCA)?

    At YMCA Horsham, part of YMCA DownsLink group, we are looking for volunteer chaplains to help run an informal weekly chaplaincy evening to support the residents of Horsham Y Centre. This project houses 50 young people at any one time, aged 16-25, most of whom stay around 2 years. 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 Horsham Y Centre 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 Horsham Y Centre for over 5 years and is deeply valued by staff and young people.

    Chaplaincy takes place on Thursdays evenings and we would ask for a commitment of one evening every 2-3 weeks.

    Interested? Contact Sue Anson, YMCA Chaplain (North Sussex) sue.anson@ymcadlg.org

    The Parishes of Wadhurst, Tidebrook and Stonegate Situated in beautiful Sussex countryside, we are a group of three thriving parishes with a vision for our churches to be lively, growing places where people of all ages know and respond to the love of Jesus and accept him into their lives.

    We look forward to welcoming a Vicar who is:

    • in the mainstream of the evangelical tradition and able to embrace a spectrum of churchmanship.

    • an able, thoughtful and inspiring teacher and preacher • willing and able to care for all ages in the church and for those in the wider parish.

    • able to lead us into growth, helping us engage with those on the fringe of the churches and draw them into faith.

    • an effective and strategic team leader, able to encourage, motivate and support both staff and volunteers, in a benefice which has been a training parish in the past and hopes to be so in the future.

    • someone who will support and encourage the wide range of liturgy and music currently used in worship.

    We can offer:

    • welcoming, hard-working and supportive church communities.

    • a staff team including a Pastoral Assistant for families, Readers and an administrator.

    • three attractive, interesting and structurally sound churches, with good facilities and flexible fellowship areas.

    • a church presence on Wadhurst High Street: Carillon Cottage, run as a signposting and community service centre.

    • a well-appointed four-bedroom detached vicarage set in a quiet garden but a short walk from a lively and thriving village.
