MEMBERS of St Peter's Church, Fremington, are hoping to appoint a full-time paid children and families' co-ordinator to work in both the church and the wider community.
Over recent years the church has done a lot to establish positive links in Fremington with children, young people and their families.
There are groups covering the age range from 0 to 18. A full-time youth worker was employed, but he has now moved away.
The Vicar of Fremington, the Rev Paul Hockey, said the church had re-shaped the job, which was now being advertised both locally and nationally.

It was hoped that the new appointment would strengthen and develop the links already established.
"The project is going to cost the church around �25,000 a year, and so it is hoped that some grant-funding can be found in addition to lots of local fund-raising events," Mr Hockey said.
