This is an exciting opportunity for the successful candidate, as the Benefice begins a new chapter in its life as the Church in Wales celebrates its centenary and the Year of Pilgrimage.  We are looking for someone to become part of a new Team comprising the Rector, Vicar and two curates, where our vision is to be a family of churches reaching out into the community, sharing Christ’s love and making disciples.
We seek a priest with a proven record of working collaboratively with others, who exercises creativity and initiative and who is also flexible and adaptable. The Team Vicar will be expected to particularly develop the Benefice’s ministry to children and young people and to explore new ways of involving young families in the life of the church community and to assist in the development and execution of the benefice’s plan to grow the Church across all age groups.
The Benefice is seeking to develop engagement with the “unchurched” and to build on the solid foundations that are already established, as we share in the Diocesan vision to tell a joyful story, grow God’s kingdom and to build our capacity for good.
The Vicar will be someone who relates well to people of all ages and social backgrounds, has a warm personality and who is able to work effectively alongside clergy and laity
In return the Vicar will be supported and encouraged by the Bene-fice, who will provide the opportunity for him or her to develop their own particular skills and interests as they embark upon this stage in their ministry.
