New Contemporary Worship Pastor
Great news - on Saturday 07 September we appointed Joe Tomkinson as Contemporary Worship Pastor.
His application was excellent and the interview process was very thorough. Ben Wynne, Pippa Page, Kat Lauder and myself were on the panel and having reviewed the interview on the basis of Joe’s character, competency, chemistry, commitment and calling. We where unanimous in deciding that he was the right person for the job.
Joe is 25 years old and is married to Alice. They moved to Bath over the summer. Joe is a qualified councillor and will also be working part time at the Trauma Recovery Centre in Bath. Alice runs the South West franchise of Big Foot Arts which specialises in drama and creative workshops with young people. She will be growing that business across the region over the next few years. Joe has led worship in a variety of contexts from small churches to a multi site church of 850 people. He has experience of building youth worship bands as well as a passion for seeing worship as a way of life, not just a song on a Sunday.
The role is part time (16 hours per week initially) and Joe started on Monday the 9th September.
Please pray for Joe and Alice as they settle into Bath and life at All Saints.
