Sunday School (Kids Ahoy) Workers

Small Boat Big Sea are a community of people who share a passion for life, creativity and justice. We seek to develop genuine Christian spirituality that connects deeply through place and space, beyond just Sundays. We do, however, meet weekly at the William Street Studios in Manly, and hold a number of other events, gatherings and projects.

We meet together for ‘The Lounge’ on a Sunday evening at 5.30pm and run a Sunday School, Kids Ahoy, during that time.

The Roles

Small Boat Big Sea (SBBS) employs Sunday School Workers to run the children’s ministry on a Sunday evening from 5.20-7.20pm. These roles provide spiritual, social and practical input to the children in the SBBS community. It is envisioned that the people undertaking the roles would take an active role in spiritual and educational leadership with our children, implement appropriate teaching curriculum, in consultation with the overseers, and create a positive, fun and enjoyable learning environment for the children. Part of these roles is to facilitate the integration of the children into the broader life of the church including The Lounge, the other Kids Ahoy age groups, missions and events.  Working with volunteers from the community, the roles cover primary school ages and high school to Year 10 (subject to change). The smooth running of Kids Ahoy includes flexibility of the Sunday School workers to run or facilitate or mix groups and ages as required.

We are seeking to fill both the Primary age (immediate start) and High school age (November start) roles. Read more…


Ministry Facilitator

We are seeking a Ministry Facilitator to facilitate the ministries of Small Boat Big Sea to ensure spiritual development, growth and pastoral care and work with the community to create missional engagement. A significant part of the role would involve developing missional engagement, as well as youth ministry. Other areas include pastoral care, some teaching and shared oversight of our Sunday evening ‘lounge’ as well as some administrative duties.  Reporting to the Overseers, this role works closely with the Deacons in the outworking of these responsibilities. The successful applicant does not necessarily need to be ordained/ registered Baptist minister or pastor. Theological credentials and experience from other denominations is also acceptable.

  • Oversee Pastoral Care, ministry areas and discipleship groups for the community
