Rector of Bath Abbey




South West

Ref: JN006130

Job Description

Bath Abbey is a parish church – an iconic building in the centre of the city with a vocation to be cathedral-like in the scale of its ministry and operation. There is a range of worship styles from traditional choral, to contemporary informal.


  • We aspire to be a people and place fully alive in Jesus Christ, called to worship, to offer hospitality and to pursue justice for all.
  • We want to grow in discipleship, in number and diversity and to be at the heart of the city; to be a place where young and old are welcome and will see the story of Jesus being lived and hear it being told.


  • We have world-wide mission support partners and welcome half a million visitors a year from all over the world.
  • The build-phase of a £19m development project has just commenced.


We seek a shepherd who will teach and care for the flock and who will represent Christ to us and in the wider community.

We need someone who will lead a large and complex
organisation, develop a clergy and lay team and delegate, to use the skills of everyone.
