Residential Community Member / Grounds Person

Part of Ellel's 2-year Service and Discipleship Programme

We are looking for a mature Christian to join our community, coupling the performance of religious duties with a non-pastoral role of serving as the Grounds Person.

Ellel Pierrepont, Surrey

Applications deadline: 30 Nov 22


Luke 9:11 is our foundational verse.  The grounds at Pierrepont very much represent that warm welcome we want to extend to all our visitors.  The 35 acre estate in its beautiful surroundings facilitates God’s healing in people’s lives. Our vision is that the grounds will increasingly be more usable and enjoyed by visitors.  Due to the seasonal nature of the role, the work is varied and requires flexibility.

General work includes clearing and maintaining the appearance of pedestrian paths, the main driveway, mowing and edging grass, raking leaves; weeding, rubbish clearance, litter picking and tidying all areas of the site as required. There will also be a need for help with projects, buying, growing and propagating plants and establishing areas of decorative beds/hanging baskets/pots.

Specific Winter work includes seed sorting/preparation for planting including disinfecting pots, stablishing hedges, pruning and bulb planting along with general maintenance and cleaning of the poolside furniture.

The applicant must have a heart for serving God and people through the work of Ellel Ministries. Given our ethos as a Christian community, applicants are required to be Christians and have a heart for the healing ministry. Participation in our Christian community and performance of religious devotional duties is an essential aspect of this role.

This vacancy is offered as a live-in position with full board accommodation (private bedroom and shared kitchen, bathrooms and living areas along with a small allowance to cover personal expenses).
