Area Pastor

Thank you so much for considering the post of Area Pastor

Kingsgate Peterborough is a large church with around 3500 people connected with us who call Kingsgate their home. Pastoral oversight is provided by a team of Area Pastors, with each Area Pastor responsible for a series of postcodes that comprise their area of responsibility. A full time Area Pastor oversees up to 500 people, and works within their area to build local team, ensure midweek discipleship in LifeGroups (small groups) and engagement with their local community. Area Pastors provide leadership through volunteer Group Pastors and LifeGroup Leaders.

As an Area Pastor Team, our purpose is to ensure our KingsGate family:

  • experience great pastoral care at their point of need
  • develop in their discipleship through LifeGroups
  • discover their God-given call and destiny
  • are supported by growing pastoral leaders at every level
  • are empowered to reach out with the gospel, to their local communities

This is an opportunity for you to work as part of the Pastoral Team and provide pastoral oversight as an Area Pastor to a geographical area.

On a day to day basis you will report directly to the Area Pastor Team Leader, Heather Robertson. All staff are friendly, enthusiastic people who love being part of the vision here at KingsGate Community Church. To be successful in the post you will be a committed Christian who models Christian discipleship and growth, have experience of providing high level pastoral care and experience of identifying and developing other Pastoral Leaders.

Should you decide to apply and are successful in your application, you will be joining a group of well motivated, enthusiastic people who work hard but have fun while doing so together.
