Connor Diocese is seeking to appoint a Children’s Ministry Development Officer to develop and expand existing children’s ministry throughout the diocese. The post is a three-year, fixed term contract and there is an occupational requirement for the post-holder to be a practicing Christian who must be committed to work within the Christian ethos and doctrine of The Church of Ireland.

Jill Hamilton, who has served the diocese as Children’s Project Development Officer for the past seven years, is leaving Connor Diocese following the appointment of her husband, the Rev Geoff Hamilton, as rector of Kilhorne Parish, Annalong, Diocese of Down and Dromore.

Jill announced her departure in January, saying:

“I have really loved getting to know both clergy and voluntary children’s leaders throughout the diocese. It’s been a privilege to work alongside you and to get an insight into the fabulous work that is going in in the parishes with children and families.”
