Job Description

RECTOR OF ST SAMPSON

Under the episcopal care of the Rt Revd Trevor Willmott

 

There is a wonderful opportunity for mission, outreach and service in the parish of St Sampson, located in the north of the beautiful Channel Island of Guernsey. We are two distinct congregations (St Sampson’s parish church and St Mary’s church, L’Islet) in the one parish, with great potential and opportunities. Embracing both traditional and modern, we are looking for an outgoing Rector who will lead us enthusiastically in the next phase of our growth, life and ministry. A warm welcome awaits.

 

WE ARE LOOKING FOR A RECTOR:

  • Who has experience, a mature outlook and the ability to relate to people of all ages.
  • Who is flexible and will provide both formal, traditional services and informal, relaxed worship.
  • Who will be courageous in leading us, and guiding our enthusiasm for growth and service to a new phase. • Who will have a heart for young people, making the most of the links and opportunities present.
  • Who has strong and engaging interpersonal skills, is quick to form relationships, and able to offer support, encouragement and motivation to the people of our congregations and the wider community.
