We are a growing church, seeking to appoint an energetic and gifted pastor and preacher, to work alongside the Rector in pursuit of our 5 priorities: evangelism, discipleship, worship, pastoral care, and reaching the next generation.


Rather than being left to get on with it as a 'lone ranger', the Team Vicar will work closely and collaboratively with the Team Rector. This will include sharing the regular ministries of: - Planning, leading, and Biblical preaching at Sunday and midweek services - Making disciples and raising up leaders; discerning gifts and equipping God's people for works of service - Sharing the pastoral responsibility and missional opportunity of weddings, funerals and baptisms - Working with the wardens and PCC in the ongoing leadership, management and governance of the church Beyond these, there is considerable scope to tailor the role to suit the gifts and passions of the successful candidate as the church continues to grow.
