1 YOUTH MINISTER PROFILE AND JOB DESCRIPTION The Church on the Heath The Key, Elvetham Heath, Fleet, Hampshire, GU51 1HA Rev Patrick Butler, , , Church office: churchontheheath.org.uk Where we are Fleet is a town in the Hart district of Hampshire, located 37 miles south west of London and with a population of approx. 36,000. It was recently voted the best place to live in the UK by the Halifax Quality of Life study. This is due to the affluent majority of the population, better weather and health conditions, high levels of access to leisure space and the town s situation surrounded by countryside. Elvetham Heath was built just to the north of Fleet town centre on reclaimed heath land between the M3 motorway and the London-Southampton railway line. Around 75% of the development is owner-occupied housing, 15% social housing and 10% private letting. It is generally an affluent development but with pockets of relative material need. Construction was completed in It has a population of 5,000 and serves as a commuter area to Basingstoke, Reading and London. Fleet railway station is a mile from the centre of the development. Who we are There are not many churches like us! Formed as an Anglican, Baptist, Methodist and United Reformed local ecumenical partnership fifteen years ago, we grew out of a vision of the local churches in Fleet to plant just one, united church on the new development of Elvetham Heath. A group of 25 people was sent out from local churches, meeting first in a local home and then in the Elvetham Heath Community Centre. God has more than honoured that initial step of faith. Today we are a worshipping community of around 250 people meeting in a purpose-designed building opened in Our mission statement is Sharing. Serving. Growing. This means that we long to share Jesus relevantly and passionately on Elvetham Heath, to serve and build up the community, and to encourage all to grow in their walk with God. The church is located at the heart of the community next to the pub, the school and the supermarket. All kinds of community groups use our premises throughout the week and every morning the coffee bar is buzzing. We are committed to being welcoming, relevant and user-friendly. Above all we want be a church for the Heath.

2 Although we are a church that reflects four denominations we are one congregation with one Minister. Our main Sunday service is at 10am and includes songs led by a worship band, prayers, bible readings and a talk often followed by an opportunity to receive prayer. We also have an evening service at 7.30pm. We are blessed with a large Junior Church which worships with us in our All Age services once a month. Whilst there has been faithful ministry to young people over the years we are entering a new season in our youth work and we long to see this area of church life grow in all respects. Conferences and events we attend include Spring Harvest, New Wine and Willow Creek. Our current Minister is an Anglican who has been in post 18 months and previously served the church in South America. He longs to see the church grow in numbers, depth of faith as we remain outward facing with a heart for the community of Elvetham Heath. We have an excellent relationship with local schools, particularly the Elvetham Heath Primary School which uses our church for its whole school assemblies.
