Job Description

The seven parishes in the rural southwest corner of Lincolnshire (just to the east of the historic town of Stamford) are seeking a priest who will:

 

  • prayerfully seek to preach, teach and share scriptural truth
  • want to grasp the nature of rural ministry
  • help preserve the identity of each parish while maintaining the coherence of the Group
  • be comfortable with a range of worship and a broad expression of faith
  • develop and communicate an inspirational vision for building God’s work in the Group and each parish amongst all ages
  • lead, cultivate and enthuse teams of volunteers involved in the ministry, administration and upkeep of the seven churches
  • be open, approachable and supportive, and willing to be visible at community events in all of the villages
  • be keen to guide and support the Christian ethos of our Church of England primary school, being a regular visitor to the school and an ex-officio governor.

We are not expecting a one-person band: over the years we have learnt that doing God’s work in the seven parishes is a team effort, and we now have people with a variety of skills and who are keen, supportive and enthusiastic to pull together behind the right leader to spread God’s word in our parishes.
