The Parish Church of St Mary in Charnwood, Nanpantan

Could you be our new Parish Administrator?

Thank you for your interest. Recruitment for this post has closed.

We are looking for someone with a passion for organisation, who could support the vicar and church wardens in effecting the smooth running of St Mary’s and pursuing our vision to grow in depth of faith, follow Jesus in offering loving service and in helping others come to know God for themselves. 

We hope to find someone who will share that vision and work with the assistant administrator and other volunteers to continue to develop our ways of working to be effective and in compliance with external requirements.

15 hours per week; £15 per hour

5 weeks paid leave pro-rata

St Mary’s is a friendly and welcoming church on the south-western edge of Loughborough. Our building is small but, rather like the Tardis, conceals a lot that is going on!  On an average Sunday we have around 70 worshippers across two services. We also run various midweek activities both on site and in the community.


 We are blessed with well-maintained buildings, including a Chapter House for small meetings, and the beautiful church woodland both of which are in regular use for church activities as well as external bookings.


In line with our diocese, the Kingdom of God is our vision.

With God’s help we want to grow in depth of faith, to follow Jesus in the loving service we offer to those around us, and in helping others come to know God for themselves. 

As part of our unique identity, we celebrate and want to make good use of:

  • Our woodland, encouraging care for God’s creation

  • Creative talents in music and the arts

  • The small and friendly size of our worship area


Our priorities to 2026 are:

  • To improve the hospitality and accessibility of our building and site.

  • To support and grow intergenerational worship and engagement with children and families.

  • To encourage wellbeing and good mental-health in partnership with other groups and agencies.

The role of Parish Administrator covers a wide breadth of areas, including administration, communication, and governance support.


However, you will not be alone!  Working closely with the vicar, you will have the support of a part time assistant administrator (working 8 hours per week) as well as many other church volunteers  - wardens, treasurer, safeguarding/GDPR/electoral roll officers as well as members of the finance, employment and fabric teams.


We also have good systems in place - ChurchSuite, Expense Plus and Microsoft 365 - and a recently refreshed website using Wix.  Don’t worry if these are new to you - a willingness to learn, confidence to explore, and motivation to encourage others is more important.  We hope that you will be able to lead us in using the capabilities of these systems well and as appropriate for the church.


We don’t have a parish office so the role will be based at home but with regular meetings in the parish.  Travel expenses to a max of 20 miles round trip will be paid by the PCC.

Closing date for applications: Friday 7th June 2024

Interviews: Monday 17th June 2024
