The West London Mission is a circuit of the Methodist Church.  Its two churches are Hinde Street Methodist Church and King’s Cross Methodist Church. It runs a student hostel called Methodist Chaplaincy House (MCH) and works with young adults and students across its churches.

Through its professionally run WLM Services, a range of services are provided including supported accommodation for ex-military personnel, a residential care home for people with alcohol dependency, a hostel for men coming out of prison, advice and support for rough sleepers, affordable counselling and financial resilience services.


Hinde Street Methodist Church is a historic church in Marylebone. It is an inclusive congregation, with several active ministries, including Wednesday Club, Tuesday Meditation, and Thursday Tea-time. More than 60 twelve-step groups meet at Hinde Street Methodist Church, and it is also the rehearsal home of the London Philharmonic Choir.


The Part Time Evening Caretaker role is to provide cover for the full time Caretaker on Monday evenings between 5.00pm and 9.30 pm, i.e. four and a half hours per week. Cover is not required on Mondays that are public holidays.

Other daytime, evening or Saturday shifts will be offered to cover staff leave and busy periods.

This Part Time Evening Caretaker role is responsible for overseeing access to the church for anonymous support groups, choirs and other church bookings, welcoming visitors to Hinde Street Methodist Church, managing security of the building and ensuring the building is locked at the end of each day. Also whilst applicable, the role is responsible for ensuring that all visitors comply with the Covid-19 policies, and for periodic light cleaning of high-touch areas such as door handles (where the cleaner is not on duty).

Note that there is no lone-working involved, there will be at least one other staff member on the premises at all times whilst the church is open. Practical on site advice can be obtained from the full time Caretaker and the Circuit Office Manager.
