Job Description


  • Are you drawn to ministry near city and parkland?
  • Do you relish starting with the small and building up?
  • Do you love to see potential in people and draw it out?
  • Is your ministry ethos about new people coming to faith in Jesus and growing in discipleship?
  • Are you excited by partnering with others both in the church and beyond?
  • Will you roll your sleeves up to make new things happen on the ground?
  • Is your leadership style adaptable?
  • Have you got the heart and abilities to relate faith to the younger generations?

If so, is God calling you to Bestwood?


We are a newly formed three-parish benefice, on the northern edge of Nottingham near Bestwood Country Park, with a range of residential, parkland, ex-mining and ex-army areas; plus multiple schools and diverse social mix.


As a Spiritual Leader and Enabler in Mission, you will be key to
reshaping and re-imagining the churches’ vision and approach to growing new disciples in this area. You will have the benefit of strong
