Hub Engagement Manager St Mark’s Newtown

We wish to appoint a Hub Engagement Manager onto the Hub leadership team with the specific role of leading us out in planting, nurturing and growing new initiatives, community connections and worship communities.

St Mark’s Newtown is a vibrant Anglican church in Wigan pioneering a new way of being and doing church within the vision and strategy of the ‘Transforming Wigan Movement’ to engage 10% of Wigan in the journey of discipleship with Jesus by 2022.

The Hub Engagement Manager will pioneer a new missional approach establishing St Mark’s as a resource hub with the intention to be outward going rather than inward looking.  60% of this role will focus on community engagement and 40% on specific management of the The Hub base.  The three key responsibilities of this role are:
  • Engaging with community projects.  Developing a network of relationships with other organisations and agencies to explore opportunities for partnership, and overseeing the implementation of new projects.

  • Building a Hub Team.  Recruiting, equipping, leading and supervising the disciples who will form The Hub mission-ministry team. 

  • Managing The Hub facilities.  Overseeing the use of the facilities, managing necessary policies and relevant legislation and ensuring that the mission-ministry is run to best practice in order to serve and bless people to the highest standard possible.
