Transforming Communities


  • Wondering whether God may be calling you to step up to a wider sphere of ministry and responsibility?
  • Would you enjoy contributing to a forward thinking strategic team in an increasingly imaginative Diocese?
  • Do you have a heart for the well-being and effectiveness of clergy and laity?
  • Do you approach leadership with a ‘How can we help you’ attitude?
  • Do you desire the flourishing of both traditional and emerging aspects of ministry and mission in the Church of England?
  • Do you ‘get things done’, without fuss, but with humour and humility?

Then you may be the sort of person we are looking for!
