Rector Designate (House for Duty)

The Parishes of Culworth, Chipping Warden, Edgcote and Moreton Pinkney (The Culworth Benefice)




East Midlands

Ref: JN010371

Job Description

In glorious open country in the heart of England, the Culworth Benefice embraces three villages and one hamlet with a population of around 1600. The parishes work well together and support each other. South Northamptonshire is one of England’s little known treasures and is markedly rural, with ancient villages in addition to market towns. The villages are warm and hospitable places. People view the Rector and the Church as essential parts of the fabric of life.


We are seeking a Rector Designate (House for Duty) who will:


  • Be a visible presence, getting to know parishioners and welcoming them into the church family.
  • Encourage families to be part of the Family Services or the recently introduced Messy Church.
  • Maintain an active participation in Culworth School whilst also supporting Chipping Warden School.
  • Work towards the growth of the churches in the benefice through inter-generational life-long membership.
  • Manage creatively the demands of a dispersed but well-disposed benefice.
  • Be genuinely happy at the prospect of living and working in the country, whilst being energetic, tolerant and imaginative.

You will be well supported by these friendly and positive church families.




Enhanced DBS Disclosure required.
