House for Duty Priest

at Lulworth Cove part of the West Purbeck Benefice




South West


Ref: JN009294

Job Description

The West Purbeck Benefice has been formed in the last few years by bringing together three separate benefices and reflects a commitment to collaborative ministry, lay and ordained across several villages in a beautiful part of Dorset. We now seek a House for Duty Associate Priest to complete the clergy team and assist us into the next stage of our growth and development in a creative way.


If you are:

  • community minded, expectant of, and can help manage change ― in our benefice, but also in us.
  • visionary, with a love for people, committed to working collaboratively with skills of listening, tact, kindness, empathy, and a sense of humour.
  • comfortable leading many different styles of worship.
  • wanting to work flexibly and creatively, willing to building relationships, including with visitors and the ‘community fringe’ to develop mission and ministry.

This post might suit a ‘gig-economy’ priest with other sources of income keen to re-locate to a beautiful part of the world (and four bedroomed Rectory in West Lulworth)
