Residential Community Member/Maintenance Officer

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

We are looking for a mature Christian to join our community. This will involve both spiritual activities at the centre alongside practical hands-on maintenance activities reporting to our Ground & Maintenance Manager.

Ellel Glyndley Manor, East Sussex

Applications deadline: 31 May 24


Spiritual Roles

As a part of our team you will participate in daily team prayer and worship meetings, have opportunities to grow in your Christian faith through regular attendance on teaching courses and receive prayer ministry for your own personal development. Other opportunities may include welcoming and/or hosting guests to the centre; training in prayer ministry and opportunities to share short devotional messages with the team and/or guests on events; opportunities for teaching and/or group leading during events with guests.

Ellel Ministries’ foundational scripture is Luke 9:11, where Jesus welcomed the people, taught them about the Kingdom of God and healed those who needed healing. The ‘welcome’ aspect of what we do is therefore very important to us here at Glyndley Manor as it is a way to share God’s love to those who come through our doors.

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.

Practical Roles

We are looking for someone who can maintain, repair, renovate and improve the manor house and cottages facilities. Ideally you should have well-rounded experience working in building and maintenance, also in painting, decorating, plumbing and carpentry. General understanding and knowledge of maintaining buildings is required. You must be able to work with a team, alone and on your own initiative. Good interpersonal skills and a willingness to learn or teach others if appropriate would be helpful.

The role is full-time and is a live-in position with full board accommodation (private bedroom and shared kitchen, bathrooms and living areas) along with an appropriate allowance to cover personal expenses.
