Team Member - Refugee Ministry - Scotland

Upper Room.jpg

Upper Room Church was a Bible study in a top floor flat (apartment) and during a teaching in the Book of Acts, we realised we were a church. We are 40+ people, mainly made up of Iranian asylum seekers and refugees, who grew too large and upset the local city council. We now hold our gatherings in a local church and see this as God opening a new door and chapter in the life of Upper Room. Our gatherings are in Farsi & English and include a time of worship, a fellowship meal, a Bible teaching and then prayer.

Our team is made up of 4 part time Communitas staff who are gifted in teaching, worship, kids ministry and administration. We’re looking for someone that is a committed follower of Jesus Christ and has a strong commitment to the mission and values of Communitas. As a long term (3+ years) ministry partner, we see the primary responsibility for you to be building discipling relationships with individuals (and groups) who are seeking Jesus. We have started a social enterprise for refugees to start businesses & find employment, are launching conversational English classes and now training up lay leaders from within our Iranian brothers and sisters in Christ – this role is an entrepreneurial opportunity in an entrepreneurial community!

Do you find yourself thinking, ‘I could do that!’ or, ‘I want to do that!’ as I follow Christ? If so, please check out the full opportunity profile here. We encourage you to let us know by filling out our contact form here, and let us know of your interest in serving with the Upper Room Church.  We LOVE shepherding people toward the call God is placing on their lives. Maybe He is calling YOU to serve in the UK?!
