Team Rector

of Bexhill

Contract:

Permanent

Location:

South East

Recruiter:

Ref: JN009169

Job Description

The Bexhill Team Ministry includes two churches. St Peter’s (Grade II* listed, ER 222) is the ancient and civic parish church of Bexhill, founded in 772. St Michael’s (ER 85) was built in 1930 and is a smaller community-oriented church, serving the expanding suburb of Pebsham. St Peter’s is situated in the picturesque environment of the Old Town, within a short distance of the town centre and seaside, but the parish also contains areas of considerable deprivation. The tradition could be described as ‘moderate catholic’ but includes people from a wide range of backgrounds. There is a strong choral tradition at St Peter’s, and children’s work is undertaken at both churches.

 

We can offer:

  • Excellent reach into the local community, with many opportunities for mission.
  • Outstanding two-form entry Voluntary Aided Primary School with strong links to the church.
  • Considerable resources, including church hall facilities at both churches.
  • A capable team of lay leadership
  • A Team Vicar based at St Michael’s – this appointment will be made by the new Team Rector in conjunction with the Bishop. The post is currently designated as House for Duty.

We are seeking a Team Rector who will:

  • Be a priest who will help us ‘to know Christ and make him known’ (our parish strapline)
  • Develop mission and evangelism within Bexhill.
  • Be a collaborative, transparent and inclusive leader
  • Promote Christian teaching, nurture and worship.
  • Have organisational and administrative skills.
