Diocese of Bath & Wells

We are a newly-formed benefice of seven parishes on the Devon and Somerset border, near Wellington; Ashbrittle, with Greenham, Bathealton, Kittisford, Rockwell Green, Sampford Arundel, Stawley and Thorne St Margaret, with Holywell Lake.

We are seeking a minister who:

  • has a view of mission which engages with the community through church activities and seeks to attract people to engage with Christian faith and encounter the love of God
  • is able to care for the congregation and has a concern for the wider community
  • has an ability to understand and minister within a rural as well as a semi-urban context
  • is supportive of a variety of approaches to worship and who is continuing to explore their own spirituality
  • is comfortable with themselves and is able to enjoy being part of a church family
  • is a team player who wishes to offer a distinctive strength of ministry alongside working with others to achieve the Church’s aims
  • is an enabler who develops the gifts of others

We can offer a well-appointed vicarage in Rockwell Green with good local schools. West Tone is a diverse church family celebrating centuries of worship, seeking to serve God with our whole lives. We have a strong desire to be relevant in today’s world and aim to achieve our goal by personal example, service and outreach to our local communities.
