Six communities seeking a creative House for Duty Priest who would relish working alongside a dedicated and supportive team in a diverse Benefice which includes MOD Lyneham housing the Royal Electrical and Mechanical Engineers (REME). This post will be based in Lyneham.

  • Be prepared to develop ideas and relationships to build God’s Kingdom within our expanding and diverse community;
  • Relish the opportunities for partnership with the chaplaincy and the MOD.


We offer:

  • Support from a wide team of people with lay ministries in pastoral care, leading worship, hospitality and administration.
  • The benefits of both a large village with shops, pubs, a post office and easy access to the M4 and the beauty of rural North Wiltshire.
