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:
- 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.
- 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.
