Priest in Charge

Priest-in-Charge of The Benefice of Highnam Parish and Priest-in-Charge of the Parish of Minsterworth


South West


Ref: JN009791

Job Description

This single role is an exciting opportunity to come and minister in a lively rural setting. Following recent work with our Senior Interim Minister, and within the context of the ongoing Deanery Strategic Review, the benefice of Highnam and the parish of Minsterworth are coming together with a view to shaping a newly configured benefice. This development is warmly welcomed by all involved and there is great eagerness to shape sustainable ministry and mission for the future, in conjunction with continuing deanery conversations. Both Highnam Benefice and Minsterworth are building on excellent foundations. There are committed lay volunteers, two retired members of clergy, and a children and family worker shared with a neighbouring benefice. There is scope built into this post for the further development of ministry in partnership with others in the deanery and beyond, for example in working with the traveller community, and this is something the parishes are keen to see.
