  • a person of God-given vision who will love people, work collaboratively with necessary skills of listening, tact, kindness, empathy, and a sense of humour,

  • comfortable leading many different styles worship,

  • an outward-looking person, keen to be involved in the community, who will enjoy building relationships, and increasing the ‘missionary fringe’,

we hope you would consider coming to join us.


In turn we can offer our enthusiasm, our willingness to collaborate as a supportive team, part-time administrative support and an attractive four bedroomed vicarage in Wool.
