Archdeacon of Nottingham




East Midlands

Ref: JN007051

Job Description

The Bishop of Southwell and Nottingham is seeking to appoint an Archdeacon who, as a member of the Bishop’s Core Team, will share in the strategic leadership of mission across the diocese, with particular responsibility in the archdeaconry of Nottingham. Engaging closely with the priorities in Growing Disciples, the Bishop is looking to appoint someone who will bring experience, insight and creativity in providing diocesan-wide oversight for the development of our ministry among children, youth, students and young adults.


The Archdeaconry covers the City of Nottingham and its conurbation as well as rural areas in the south of the Diocese, with a population of 650,000. Nottingham itself is a vibrant city with a much younger than average population, including 60,000 students who live in or close to its two premier universities. It is a key regional hub for business enterprise, entertainment, sport and creative industries.


Among the many opportunities this position offers the Bishop is looking to appoint someone who can:

  • Support clergy and lay leaders turning vision into action, helping to develop and implement long-term, sustainable plans for mission and growth.
  • Facilitate the planting and grafting of new worshipping communities in line with the Diocesan objectives in Growing Disciples.
  • Deliver a compelling picture for how generosity in giving, effective finance, pastoral structures and administration can release mission and enable growth.
  • Winsomely preach and teach the faith, inspiring others through a personal commitment to evangelism, out of a conviction for whole-life discipleship.
  • Contribute confidently to the awareness, delivery and adherence of all Safeguarding practices.
