Job Description

Christ Church & St George’s, Esher, Surrey


Is God calling you to this new, exciting and challenging opportunity?

We have two distinct Churches each with its own individual identity, yet sharing and valuing a common heritage and core values. Two successful Church Schools (primary and secondary) and a committed church community that has a varied social mix, with a mutual desire to grow together as a Christian body.


Esher is an attractive parish in Surrey, conveniently situated just 18 miles south-west of London. Being on the edge of the Green Belt, it benefits further from woodland and plenty of open spaces.


We are seeking a Rector who will bring experience and gifting to help us with:

Leadership -

  • Make decisions and lead with confidence
  • Manage people well through negotiation, encouragement and celebration
  • Manage change effectively and unify a diversity of views
  • Communicate competently in day to day work in the Parish

Discipleship and Prayer -

  • Engage and appeal to a wide range of people through preaching and teaching
  • Help us to further develop our discipleship and the prayer life of the Church.

Growth -

  • Encourage, accept and welcome all who enter our Churches
  • Respect our traditions, whilst embracing and developing different styles of worship
  • Enable us to build new relationships with our wider community
  • Guide us in reviewing and building our Stewardship

We can offer you a supportive team, including Occasional Preachers, all of whom are ready to stretch and strengthen our worship and work in the community.
