Building Manager

Brighton Allston Congregational Church
Where Jesus the healer meets Jesus the revolutionary, and together we serve to create a more just and peaceful world.

Brighton Allston Congregational Church in Brighton Center is seeking a building manager for custodial, building security, repair/maintenance, and food ministry support. We offer $20-$25 per hour for 40 hours per week with full health benefits.

Founded in 1828, the church today is a small congregation of mainline Protestant worshipers (United Church of Christ) that actively welcomes LGBTQ+ members, with a strong commitment to racial and environmental justice. Through our ministries, we provide food relief to thousands in Allston-Brighton. All of our staff and guests are required to wear masks on the property and follow other COVID safety protocols set by the church.

We seek a Building Manager to provide:

Regular cleaning of church building;
Basic “handyman” maintenance and repair of church building and parsonage;
Manage contractors to handle major repairs, including seeking bids, supervising contractors, and coordinating payment with the office administrator;
Building security, including enforcing building opening and closing hours, fire and sanitation codes, and church COVID policies;
Oversight of building usage, including contractors and vendors seeking building access, and coordinating with pastor and administrator in scheduling building usage;
Assisting groups using the church for regular or ad hoc events, or special church services, including assisting with building access, setup, break down, and closing of the building following events;
Manage heating, plumbing, and HVAC systems;
Assist food ministry with delivery and organizing of materials and thrift shop as needed;
Assist with all-staff fundraising and grant writing efforts;
Assist unhoused guests with access to showers, laundry, and access to their personal belongings in the basement.

This is a physically active position; our buildings have two flights of stairs and no elevator. The Building Manager will work some evenings and weekends and must be able to lift, carry, and move items more than 50lbs.

Beyond these basic requirements, we are looking for a team player with good communication skills, who can get behind our mission of serving all members of our community equitably. All of our staff are expected to greet our guests with warmth and compassion.

Our church, and by extension our food ministry, is committed to the work of justice, equity, and inclusion. We recognize that systemic injustice often plays out in employment practices. We particularly encourage those whose identities have been historically marginalized (Black, Indigenous, POC, woman, queer, trans, disabled, unhoused, etc.) to apply.

To apply, please send a resume and two references to
