Job Description

On the edge of the amazing Exmoor National Park, and within easy reach of the stunning coast and beaches of North Devon, this is a wonderful place to live and work. We have rain, snow and a lot of sun: but all weathers bring God’s gifts for a new Team Rector.

We seek a leader who:

  • understands the joys and challenges of life in a large, rural Benefice;
  • will relish being part of our communities, building relationships with people of all backgrounds, understandings and spiritualities;
  • will focus greatly on growing the church in our communities;
  • can lead our ten Parishes, encouraging unity and cooperation.
  • is a real team player, encouraging lay-leaders and delegating responsibilities to build a strong, united Ministry-team;
  • will help us develop worship to meet the needs of our Parishes and seize opportunities for new growth.

    In return:

    We offer loyal and supportive PCCs and congregations working together to develop our churches, lay-leaders and provide admin-support; we recognise our Rector will need time also for holidays and retreats.

    Following the appointment of a Team Rector, a 0.5 Team Vicar will be chosen. We would welcome interest from married, clergy couples who could share the two posts.
