There is an occupational requirement that the person appointed be a Christian. Our church families are not as ethnically diverse as we would like to be! Applications are welcome from people from any ethnic group. This role will require working closely with the Rector, Jonty Frith, who is on the committee of CEEC Bath & Wells; the successful applicant will gladly affirm the Basis of Faith (including Additional Declarations) of the Church of England Evangelical Council, and be at ease with the complementarian theology of the South West Gospel Partnership, whether or not in full agreement. Theological training and some practical ministry experience would be advantageous. An enhanced DBS check will be required for this role.
