Sheppard Scholar opportunities

There are new opportunities for Sheppard Scholars at St Martin-in-the-Fields.

The Sheppard Scholar for HeartEdge has an interesting, wide ranging and supporting role requiring a broad range of skills. You will be working closely with clergy, congregation, office admin, verging team, events, catering, concerts, retail
teams, contractors and HeartEdge partners. It offers not only breadth of experience but also a range of responsibilities from participation and involvement to roles of leadership. The aim is to be able to give a wide experience of ministry at the heart of
the life of this church and at the same time to draw on the Pastoral Assistant’s own gifts and faith at a time of growth in the life of St Martin’s and HeartEdge.
