Families Pastor (part time)

Christ Church Inner West is a multi site church in Sydney’s Inner West with congregations meeting at St Alban’s Five Dock and St John’s Ashfield. Our church DNA is captured in three simple statements: “Our vision is Jesus.  Our mission is people.  Our cause is grace.”


Families Pastor Role 

We are currently looking for a Families Pastor for our St Alban’s Five Dock 10am congregation. The role is for 2.5 days per week. The role of the Families Pastor is to partner with parents and other adults in our church community to lead and grow our ministry to children and families. We long to see both children and their parents equipped and inspired to know, love and serve the Lord Jesus Christ, his church and the world.  For this reason the role includes pastoring both adults and children.


St Alban’s Five Dock

The 10am congregation at St Alban’s has been revitalised over the last 8 years, marked by a greater focus on mission and stronger connections in the local community. Over this time we have been blessed with growth among our young families so that the total number of children in the congregation has grown from about 5 to 45 with up to 30 in attendance each Sunday.

    • loves the Lord Jesus and longs to see others come to salvation in him
    • relates well to people of all ages and is able to teach both adults and children
    • has a heart for ministering to children in partnership with their families 
    • brings energy, creativity, maturity, organisational and leadership skills 
    • has experience working with children and a solid theological framework

  1. Strategic oversight of St Alban’s growing families’ ministry
  2. Outreach to children in the Inner West with the gospel
  3. Development of ministry teams
  4. Creating a culture of grace, discipleship, hospitality and excellence within St Alban’s families ministry
