St Nics is an open evangelical church based in the heart of the City of Durham. As part of the Church of England we have a diverse community of 300 regular attenders across all age ranges. Based in the University City of Durham, St Nics has a long established ministry with students over decades. This vacancy arises after the departure of our previous student worker after 10 years in the role. Our student ministry is in good health with a team of 4 assistant student workers and a thriving evening service where many of our students worship alongside regular members of the church.
We have good relations with the main Christian student bodies in the city including Just Love, Fusion and the Durham Intercollegiate Christian Union (UCCF) alongside college chaplains from across the University.
Having recently been designated a resource church by the Diocese of Durham, St Nics is in an exciting time of both transition and growth--with a renewed focus on discipleship, with a particular emphasis upon spiritual growth, numerical growth and growth in service amongst young people and students. This is part of our overall vision for the church as a growing community centred around Discipleship, Evangelism, Justice and Service.
