Priest in Charge (Vicar Designate)

St Barnabas and Christ's Chapel, Dulwich


London and Home Counties


Ref: JN012038

An exciting opportunity to lead this large, growing church at the heart of Dulwich in South East London. St Barnabas is open at the edges, committed at the core.

The Parish of St Barnabas and Christ’s Chapel seeks to honour God, enabling questioning, open-minded people of all ages and backgrounds to discover for themselves the significance of Jesus Christ and His calling in their lives.

The Parish has seen significant growth since the pandemic and especially through Messy Church, Playtime! and a vibrant Children’s choir. We seek to continue to grow and to disciple everyone through:

  • our open welcome to this multi-generation, inclusive community

  • inspiring work with children and families

  • care for the older members of our community

  • our vibrant musical tradition

  • thoughtful and open-minded scriptural teaching

  • social concern and care as we engage our local community

The Parish has also recently become a hub church with additional funding to support its work in partnership with a neighbouring parish, St Clement’s Dulwich.

We are seeking:

  • an outstanding missional leader with experience of leading a church into growth

  • an able teacher who will strengthen pastoral care and connectivity

  • to develop children’s ministry and establish a youth ministry

  • to work collaboratively as we seek to enable a neighbour parish to thrive

We offer:

  • a talented and enthusiastic team comprising paid staff and volunteers with the opportunity to recruit further

  • a supportive and committed PCC and wider community longing to learn and grow
    diverse and rich traditions of liturgy, music and worship

  • the support of a wider team in the diocese focused on growth and mutual flourishing
