Job Description

In the picturesque Weald of Kent, our two welcoming and active village churches are wanting to move forward together in broadening outreach to our communities, making known the good news of the gospel.

 

We are looking for our new Rector to:

  • Provide clear leadership grounded on a strong personal and corporate prayer life.

  • Provide concise, yet inspirational biblical preaching and teaching.

  • Be present and active in both local schools, as a foundation governor and in leading worship.

  • Be visible and present in both communities, recognising the value of pastoral visiting in rural villages.

  • Work with us to develop the vision of two parishes becoming one.

  • Be happy to lead traditional and contemporary forms of worship and be willing to try new approaches to connect with those who don’t normally come on a Sunday.

 

The area has several excellent schools and the Rectory is a comfortable family home in the village of Frittenden.
