Do you love Jesus, love His people and love living and working in a bustling city? Are you looking for an assistant pastor role that will be hands-on but also come with lots of support and input from a wider staff team?


Emmanuel Westbury (one of the three Emmanuel Bristol churches) is looking to appoint an assistant pastor. Emmanuel Westbury is made up of around 250 adults (including 50 – 60 students) and 100 under-18s and meets at 4pm at Redmaids' High School in Westbury-on-Trym. We are part of the Church of England. The role will be for a period of three years. We expect it to start in summer 2023, although there is flexibility for it to begin sooner.
