House for Duty Associate Minister

The Bridges Group


West Midlands


Ref: JN010348

Job Description

Two House for Duty Associate Ministers (Sunday + 2 days a week), one with a view to becoming Priest-in-Charge. One post will have a more pioneering role: to develop new, imaginative ways of being church in the community. The other post will be more traditional: to nurture and pastor those who love the traditions of the local church.


We are looking for two priests who will:


  • be prayerful, believe in a Christ-centred church, are empowered by the Holy Spirit, have a pastoral heart and will help every member achieve their full potential as Christians.
  • work strategically, creatively and collaboratively with the team of clergy, reader and lay leaders.
  • be happy to lead both traditional and more innovative styles of worship.
  • inspire, nurture and empower others to grow as disciples and service Christ in their communities.
  • build strong relationships and enjoy talking with people of all ages from both inside and outside the church.
  • recognise the potential of our church buildings for both mission and ministry.
  • feel deeply at home in a rural setting.


We can offer you:

  • A skilful leadership team and worship leaders.
  • A supportive and resourceful deanery and chapter.
  • A modern detached four-bedroom vicarage (with the best views in the diocese from Napton Vicarage Study!)
  • A group administrator
  • Three very good local primary schools - and the outstanding Southam College nearby.

Jesus tells us "I came that you may have life, and have it abundantly" {John 10:10}
