Job Description

West Dartmoor Mission Community is a single benefice on the western edge of Dartmoor. The Mission Community Council (Joint PCC) deals with overarching Mission and Vision while the PCCs manage the local interests of the churches. We have put rural Ministry on the front foot forging strong links with the four local primary schools and have a confidence in the future.


As well as the Rector the Ministerial team has: a .66 Associate Priest, 1 SSM, 2 PtO priests and 3 readers. Strong lay teams help to lead worship, run the finance (which is sound), and maintain the buildings, which are in good order. The new incumbent will have the choice between two Rectories.


Can you help us develop the next stage of our community’s journey?

  • We value opportunities for diversity and variety in membership and worship.
  • We value our togetherness in delivering new initiatives in worship whilst appreciating having more traditional worship in our smaller communities.
  • We seek fresh ways to reach out to those not yet within the church while at the same time helping our congregations to deepen their own discipleship.
