Job Description

St Thomas, Wells, with the Horringtons is a growing congregation in a single church in the beautiful Somerset city of Wells.


Normal attendance at the main Sunday morning service pre-Covid-19 was about 100 and now we average 75 to 80 (in church and on line). We have signed up to be an Inclusive Church because we extend a genuine welcome to all.


We are looking for a Priest in Charge who will serve this diverse community and inspire us in the changing times ahead. You will also be responsible for the three churches in the Benefice of Chewton Mendip with Emborough, Litton and Ston Easton who are served by a house-for-duty priest. This responsibility is currently under review.


We hope you will help us to

  • Identify, encourage and release our potential to use all our gifts in service to God, focusing especially on those who are marginalised, homeless, refugees or living in poverty, both locally and worldwide
  • Inspire, teach and develop the lay ministry
  • Nurture what we are already doing and develop new things. We are open to change!
