The United Benefice of Leadon Vale




Ref: JN008040

Job Description

The benefice of Leadon Vale has worked with an experienced Interim Minister to reframe their approach to mission and ministry and determine their priorities for the future. They have now had the opportunity to consolidate that work in a period of vacancy and are continuing to grow in confidence. Excitingly they have just joined with a neighbouring benefice and appointed a children and families minister who will be working half time in the benefice. They are now ready to appoint a new Incumbent with the necessary energy and enthusiasm to accompany them on the next stage of their journey. There is a growing ministry team of active lay leaders and retired clergy, four church schools, a new benefice council and a very supportive deanery.


This is an exciting ministry for someone who is experienced in working collaboratively, skilled in enabling change and passionate about rural ministry. You can find out more by looking at the parish profile.
