Job Description

The Benefice of mid Trent, a rural team in Staffordshire comprising 8 parishes (10 churches), wishes to appoint a Team Rector able to guide us in our desire to deepen our Christian faith and develop the Mission of our Parishes.

The churches of the Mid Trent Benefice each have their own styles of worship but increasingly we are working together as a Team, intent on identifying and implementing a range of small but high impact sustainable initiatives to take us to the next level in our spiritual and pastoral development.


Could you:

  • help us to sustain our strengths? work on our weaknesses?

  • lead us in these developments?

  • value our heritage whilst leading innovation?

  • be prepared to take risks along the way?


We offer a committed team including our Team Vicar, our Curate and Ordinand supported by an enthusiastic and varied group of lay people/PCC members.


Our rural parishes are in a beautiful part of the country with excellent road and rail links and close to shops, amenities and schools in Stafford. Experience of rural ministry is not necessary but a passion for it is.


You are welcome to visit the Benefice informally and in confidence by contacting the Bishop’s office.
