Job Description

Rural Discipleship: Diocesan and Benefice Enabler


Helping ministry to flourish in the rural church


Are you passionate about rural ministry? Do you want to see faith
flourishing in villages? Could you draw alongside others to help them do the same?


We’re looking for someone who will build on the work of the Diocesan Rural Commission, engage with rural communities and help people to learn and grow in faith and discipleship. This role will be rooted in the rural church in and around Market Bosworth and look outwards across the Diocese.


Who are we?


Our Diocese is made up of mostly rural communities with market towns and in the geographical middle is the city of Leicester. We have seen how the rural experience might contribute to the urban/town and vice versa. We note that rural contexts shape a distinctive way in which the Christian faith is lived and expressed whilst recognising it is the same faith and ministry everywhere.


Who are we looking for?


We are seeking someone of lively faith able to share this vision and
commitment, and wanting to be part of a movement of people in
mission. This is an ambitious calling, and will only be achieved through prayer, intentional investment of time and resources and a focus on equipping. The successful applicant will be someone who is called to work with local people and communities as we work to grow ourselves and others as disciples of Christ.
