Job Description

The Bishop of Southwark and Patrons (Dean & Chapter of Windsor and All Soul’s College, Oxford) wish to appoint a


Half-Stipend Rector

For the United Benefice of St. Michael’s Betchworth and St. Mary the Virgin Buckland


We are looking for a Rector who will lead our spiritual journey in both parishes to achieve our vision of an inclusive church, that is open to all, relevant to the needs of the community and at the centre of “village life”. Both parishes are rural in nature with individual PCCs and are part of the Upper Mole Group of six adjoining parishes. In particular, we wish the new Rector to:


  • respect our present traditions but lead us into new areas of worship and relevance;

  • apply strong pastoral skills to engage with the church community and wider village population;

  • strengthen the existing links with the local primary school;

  • address the challenges set out in the Parish Profile, some of which arise from recent parish surveys;

  • become enthusiastically involved in village life.


This is a half-stipend appointment covering two adjoining parishes which, although separate, have many shared values and services including a part-time administrator. As part of the appointment there is a modern four bedroomed detached house in Betchworth in the centre of our community.
