Westminster Meeting House: Children’s Workers
“We need creativity, kindness…someone who is funny, helpful and can handle challenges… Someone who can help us go into Meeting and talk about what we’ve been doing.” – Westminster Children
Westminster Meeting are seeking to expand our pool of Children’s Workers to coordinate, plan and lead a weekly Children’s Meeting during Sunday Meeting for Worship, alongside volunteers from the Meeting. The sessions will help children of all ages to engage with Quaker values, history and worship through creative and age-appropriate activities.
The Children’s Worker will develop and delivering creative, welcoming and age-appropriate activities for a wide age range of children. Sharing the role with Westminster’s current Children’s Worker, the workers will be expected to:
Help ensure that children and families are able to engage in the life of the Meeting
Ensure activities are joyfully grounded in Quaker practice, history and testimonies of peace, equality, truth, simplicity and environmental sustainability.
Collaborate with other Children’s Workers to plan sessions that develop from previous explorations. Help support children in exploring their own spirituality, callings and relationships to Quakerism, enabling their voices in the Children’s Meeting and in the Meeting as a whole.
We aim to recruit 1-2 workers to share this role over 46 weeks of the year, with each worker delivering 1-2 Sundays per month.
