‘Come follow Christ in the footsteps of St Chad’
For the Parishes of Cheswardine, Childs Ercall, Hales, Hinstock, Sambrook and Stoke on Tern
Our rural benefice in North Shropshire is looking forward to
appointing a new incumbent to lead a Ministry Team which includes an NSM colleague, Curate, Reader and Lay Ministers to serve a population of 4,000 people.
For the six Parishes, we seek a priest with the gifts, passion and calling to:
- Lead, inspire and encourage us all to grow in the power of the Holy Spirit as Christian disciples
- Enthuse, teach, and empower others
- Support and develop our exciting Youth Ministry
- Make the most of God’s wonderful Mission Opportunities in Rural Shropshire
We seek someone committed to helping us to build on the firm
foundations of our vibrant church life and to grow the Kingdom of God
in our benefice.
With six church congregations (average 15 to 30 attenders each
Sunday), three primary schools, three retirement homes, lots of village activities and some lovely pubs, you are guaranteed a variety of mission opportunities, challenges and worship styles.
The 4 bedroom vicarage has very recently been extensively modernised and is in excellent condition.
