This post offers an exciting opportunity to work collaboratively with the ministry team and congregations in our benefice.

We seek a new rector who will:

  • Help us grow and deepen our faith in God.
  • Be a leader and shepherd across the benefice.
  • Look for opportunities to be creative and innovative in worship, whilst continuing to celebrate and explore the richness of Anglican tradition.
  • Be prepared to take the church into the communities.
  • Strengthen and maintain creative links with our schools and support youth and children’s work.

We offer:

  • Friendly, welcoming congregations who are ready to try new things.
  • An aspiration for a diversity of worship.
  • A willingness to be challenged.
  • Encouragement, loyalty and support.
