Priest in Charge





Ref: JN005301

Job Description

in the parish of Pennington, Lyndhurst Deanery

We are offering you the opportunity of a role that is largely devoted to developing mission with the unchurched and de-churched, alongside sustaining the established worship and ministry activities within the church itself. Pennington is a growing village community, close to the coast and on the edge of the beautiful New Forest.


Our vision for a priest in charge for St Mark’s church is based on our mission statement – to love, to serve, to give, to all - in Jesus’ name.


We can offer:

  • A dedicated and highly motivated team, including an associate priest and an LLM to help lead in worship.
  • An efficient part time administrator.
  • A diverse parish community, with a Church of England junior school maintaining strong links to the church.
  • A nearby four-bedroom detached vicarage, close to local amenities and schools.


We welcome applicants who:

  • Have a heart for developing mission.
  • Are organised, innovative and have a strong preference to work collaboratively with teams.
  • Are enthusiastic to further develop links with an evolving community.
  • Are imaginative and spiritual leaders, grounded in their own faith.
