Job Description

The Bishop of Oxford is looking for a colleague in the Oxford Episcopal Area who will share in the spiritual and practical leadership of God’s people in this unique city, one of the world’s great cultural and intellectual crossroads.


We are seeking a Residentiary Canon for Christ Church who, as a member of Chapter, will bring wisdom, stability and creativity to the life of the Cathedral and contribute as a member of the Governing Body of Christ Church.


We are looking for an Archdeacon who will support the ministry of chaplains across the Diocese of Oxford and lead in other areas according to their gifts and skills. Our new Archdeacon will be a member of a forward looking and creative Bishop’s Staff Team committed to our common vision to be a Church that is more Christ-like – more contemplative, more compassionate and more courageous - for the sake of God’s world.


If you have a commitment to the pastoral care and welfare of the clergy and their families; enjoy finding creative solutions to the day to day challenges facing the church; are able to see mission opportunities, can make things happen and are exploring a vocation to archidiaconal and Cathedral ministry in an environment in which you could flourish and contribute, we would love to hear from you.
