Job Description


St Luke’s is a welcoming and inclusive church family with a congregation which spans all ages and is characterised by integrity, warmth and good humour. The church is situated on the south-eastern side of the lovely city of St Albans with its excellent links to London (20 minutes by rail) and surrounding countryside.

Our priorities are to develop our engagement with the local community, especially with people from diverse backgrounds, to reinvigorate our work with young people, and to increase our voice and support for environmental action.

We are praying for a new vicar who will be filled with the Holy Spirit, have a heart for teaching God’s word to everyone, and who has:

  • The ability to connect with, and be approachable for, people from a wide range of ages and backgrounds.
  • An eagerness to work in a collaborative manner, inspiring and galvanising the whole church family, as happy to motivate as a team leader as to roll up their sleeves and join in.
  • A passion for engaging with children and young people (and their leaders) to bring God into their lives and nurture their faith.
  • A willingness to embrace and develop our more relaxed style of worship and teaching that is firmly rooted in the Bible while not afraid to challenge conventional understanding.

We offer

  • an active, warm and committed church family
  • a modern church interior that is welcoming, attractive and
    encourages joyful worship
  • a vicarage and extensive garden adjacent to the church
