Benefice of the Vale of Roding

(Chigwell St Mary, Chigwell St Winifred and Chigwell Row All Saints,
Lambourne St Mary & All Saints w Abridge Holy Trinity and Stapleford Abbotts St Mary the Virgin)

 

This recently-created benefice of three parishes (five churches) straddles the edge of the London conurbation and the beautiful south-west Essex countryside and offers an able and energetic missional priest the opportunity to develop collaborative and
creative Christian engagement across the Benefice. Christ-focused and Spirit-filled, the new Team Rector will lead a committed clergy/lay Team as, together, the churches reach out to serve a wonderfully diverse range of communities.

 

Are you:

  • A strategic and creative leader in mission who can embrace the breadth of traditional and contemporary worship whilst allowing each church to honour its distinctiveness
  • An inspiring preacher and teacher, rooted in Scripture and keen to nurture others in prayer and discipleship
  • Committed to attracting and growing ministry amongst children, young people and families
  • Energised by the prospect of serving this sociologically/ethnically diverse and sometimes challenging area on the edge of London
  • Eager to work flexibly with neighbouring parishes and community organisations to make an impact for the Gospel across the south of Epping Forest & Ongar Deanery

 

If this is you, then please get in touch with us to find out more.
