We are committed to equal opportunities and diversity in Hereford Diocese and welcome applications from all suitably qualified clergy. As United Kingdom Minority Ethnic (UKME) individuals are currently under-represented within our Diocese – we would particularly welcome applications from these candidates.
The Team Rector should be approachable, able to engage with people from a wide range
of socio-economic and mixed European backgrounds, committed to maintaining existing
patterns of worship while being open to fresh expressions, passionate about social and
environmental justice, and keen to embrace and expand the team’s ecumenical intergenerational mission and its partnerships with local schools.
We seek a Rector whose approach is symbolised by:
Outstretched arms: welcoming, inclusive, Eucharistic,
hospitable, non-judgmental and accessible;
An inquisitive mind: actively listening and learning, with the humility and willingness
to ‘meet people where they are’ and be alert to God’s surprises, and an intelligence
which prioritises the ‘strategic’ over the ‘intellectual’;
An energetic leadership style which inspires and casts a vision, is organised and can
delegate, and which values the team’s existing strengths and approaches to ministry
and mission, actively nurturing opportunities for connection and vocation.
Closing date: 28 May 2021
