in the Rectorial Benefice of Aberavon (Port Talbot)

Location:

Wales

Ref: JN008791

Job Description

‘Working together, praying together, serving together’

 

Port Talbot is a coastal town with a strong industrial heritage and a population approaching 40,000. A short drive from areas of outstanding natural beauty such as Gower and the Brecon Beacons, it benefits from its own glorious beach and proximity to such attractions as Margam Country Park and the Afan Forest Park. It lies on the main east-west links of the M4 and London-Swansea line.

 

Currently a four-church Benefice, we are working towards the formation of an enlarged Ministry Area.

 

We are prayerfully looking for a priest who will:

  • by their leadership help us to grow both in depth and number
  • show ambition and excitement about the opportunities provided by pastoral reorganisation
  • inspire us with their preaching and sound teaching
  • enable us to strengthen our missional and pastoral reach into our communities

We can offer:

  • significant prospects for the development of ministerial skills and the exercise of local leadership
  • a very wide range of opportunities for ministry within a highly organised and structured Benefice, with a focus on Holy Trinity, Sandfields and St Mary’s and the communities in which they are set
  • committed congregations, with a high degree of lay leadership
  • well-sited buildings with strong potential
  • excellent accommodation with direct access to Aberavon beach
