  • an effective and strategic team leader, able to encourage, motivate and support both staff and volunteers
  • someone who will be prominent in the local village communities
  • someone who will support and encourage the wide range of liturgy and music currently used in worship.


We can offer:

  • welcoming, hard-working and supportive church communities
  • a staff team including a part time administrator, two licensed Readers, and a Youth Worker
