Job Description

We believe we are on the threshold of something new that the Holy Spirit is leading us towards: could you be the person God is calling to lead us through this transformation and beyond?

 

St Botolph’s, Chevening, serves the communities of Chevening and Chipstead, close to Sevenoaks. We are a diverse, friendly community of regular worshippers of all age groups, which welcomes newcomers. We are actively involved in the local area, with very strong links to our local primary school. The new Rector will benefit from a modern, comfortable 5-bedroom rectory and will be supported by an administrator and a very active lay ministry team. Sevenoaks itself offers a variety of state and independent schools and excellent road and rail links to London and beyond.

 

We are praying for a Rector who will:

  • Work with us to develop a strong set of Vision and Values.
  • Have a heart for mission and evangelism.
  • Be a dynamic leader with a servant heart.
  • Be able to relate to and encourage people of all ages and levels of faith to participate in church and community life.
  • Be a strategic thinker and collaborative organiser.
  • Be a gifted preacher and teacher.
  • Revitalise our worship.
  • Be compassionate, a good listener, and committed to the pastoral needs of the community.
  • Be prayerful, holy spirit–led, and encouraging in the use of the gifts of the holy spirit.
  • Be mindful of their own spiritual health and wellbeing.
  • Enjoy being visible in the local community.
  • Seek to enhance the already strong partnership with our church school.
  • Be fun and create a joyful environment.
