Holy Trinity Church Funchal - Madeira Portugal


Part time




Ref: JN006857

Job Description

The Bishop is looking to appoint a part- time Chaplain (Sunday and two days per week).


Our church situated in a historical and quiet area in the Centre of Funchal, was founded by the British community almost 200 years ago. It serves the English- speaking residents in Madeira and the many regular British visitors to the island, and visitors originating from Scandinavia and the Netherlands.


We are looking for:

  • A collaborative person able to empower and lead loyal team.
  • Someone who is open to fresh ideas and able to value differing traditions.
  • A sensitive and caring pastor who is able to nurture and inspire our local resident community and the many visitors who make up the regular congregation for Sunday eucharist.
  • Ideally a recently retired priest who wishes to extend his or her ministry in a European environment.

We offer a part time stipend of €15,000 per annum plus working expenses. There is a fully furnished, three bedroomed apartment overlooking extensive sub-tropical gardens. Utility bills, weekly cleaning service and the use of the parish car are also part of the attractive package.


Term of appointment 5 years
