The Benefice of Brize Norton and Carterton comprises two parishes, located in both a village and town setting, in West Oxfordshire on the eastern edge of the Cotswolds, a designated area of outstanding natural beauty.


With rapidly expanding communities, in both the village and town which make up the benefice, on target to more than quadruple the original rural population, we have a fantastic opportunity of bringing many more people to Jesus. Our congregations offer a warm welcome, and actively reach out to the whole community.


As our Team Rector, you will be:

  • an inspirational and hands-on leader
  • comfortable to engage with and provide support for people of all ages
  • able to preach in a variety of styles to a broad range of ages and understanding
  • enthusiastic to reach out into the community, work with our local schools and other churches, and with our chaplaincy colleagues on the adjacent base at RAF Brize Norton.

We will provide strong support from our ministry team, our PCCs and the groups of volunteers who keep both churches running smoothly on a day-to-day basis.


The four-bedroom rectory offers spacious living accommodation in the centre of the community. The local area offers excellent transport links to all parts of the country and an exceptional variety of very good schools.


Please read our parish profile for more information about us and our aspirations.
