Job Description

We are a group of seven rural parishes that straddles the A1 in pleasant rolling countryside to the south of Grantham. Although each village has a distinctive character, we recognise that we must work together, not just for ourselves, but for those who do not yet belong. Our churches are small and faithful worshipping communities and we are looking for someone who will lead us forward and help us to make better connections between the gospel and the community.

 

We are seeking a priest who:

  • will help us discern and develop a vision of what our parishes can become and encourage us to turn vision into action
  • understands rural life and rural people
  • is a team player who will encourage and train others to work alongside him/her
  • is open, approachable and supportive, and who will be seen at community events
  • is a good worship leader and who will respect our current traditions but also encourage us to be forward and outward looking
  • will provide both governance and in-school support to our two church primary schools.

For an informal chat, please contact the Rural Dean, Fr Chris Atkinson on

01778 42 24 12.
