Thank you for your interest in this position. If you are successful, you will become part of an amazing school’s work charity, which began in 1993. We have built an excellent reputation and we are working in over 100 primary schools and 13 secondary schools across Milton Keynes. We work from our offices in Bletchley and in our work, we seek to maintain our values of being Christian, pupil focussed, maintain standards of integrity and excellence and being educational. Working closely with schools, we seek to help them provide Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural development of pupils as well as explaining Christianity and its values. We aim to build bridges between schools and churches in Milton Keynes by equipping and resourcing churches to connect with their local schools.
What a huge privilege to share our faith in Jesus, inspiring and equipping the next generation by giving them the chance to explore Christianity through a variety of opportunities and demonstrating how its vales and ethos are still relevant to their daily lives. At the same time, here at Bridgebuilder we are conscious that we are going into environments where there are children of all faiths and none and our service is reflective of this. We also greatly value the opportunity to partner with local churches and we have many volunteers and helpers who support the work we do.
This is an exciting role, and you will be part of a passionate team, presenting the Christian faith in ways which are relevant, fun, engaging, and accessible to all. This role occupational requirement for the post holder to be a committed Christian.
