Job Description

Oakley and Stagsden, Bedfordshire

The Bishop of St Albans wishes to appoint a

Full-time Incumbent

for the benefice of Bromham with Oakley and Stagsden, Bedfordshire

 

The Bromham Benefice is made up of three attractive rural parishes with a combined population of 8,000, in the valley of the River Great Ouse. We are seeking a vicar who has the necessary experience to lead us in fulfilling our vision to grow in faith, discipleship and outreach to our local communities; in particular, to work with us in developing more vibrant and inspiring family services whilst respecting tradition.

 

We would like someone who:

  • will enable and guide us in realising our goals
  • can inspire and unify us in sharing Christ’s love in the communities in which we live and serve.
  • can communicate a vision for what is possible and work effectively with us to make it happen.

 

The three parishes each have their own character and the successful candidate will be:

  • able to motivate everybody to fully participate as members of the body of Christ
  • flexible and collaborative in their approach
  • empathetic in their dealings with all age-groups in the church community and beyond.

 

We offer you the whole-hearted support of a prayerful and
welcoming church community with the assistance of two experienced
self-supporting priests; plus a four-bedroom vicarage and normal
expenses.

 

The closing date for applications is Friday 9th February 2018

Interview date: Wednesday 7th March 2018
