Ref: JN011699

The Bishop of Kensington wishes to appoint an imaginative and enthusiastic priest in Anglican orders to work with the congregation of this church in the west of the Diocese of London that is broadly Central in tradition, and whose worship is usually catholic in style.


The particular strengths and gifts the parish seeks in its new priest are:

  • A good theological and liturgical understanding, coupled with a preaching style that speaks to both head and heart.

  • A collaborative leader with the vision, skill and energy to develop and empower our existing ministerial team, administrative staff and volunteers to enable the church to grow.

  • An enabler who will cherish our congregations, especially our Junior Church, support our choral worship, as well as bringing experience of attracting young families into the life of the Church.

  • A pastor who can work across different ages, backgrounds and needs to bring people closer to God and to each other, and who can reach out proactively to serve those outside the church.

The Diocese of London is committed to creating and sustaining a diverse and inclusive workforce that represents our context and wider community. We are aware that those of United Kingdom Minority Ethnic/Global Majority Heritage, women, and disabled people are currently under-represented among our clergy, and we particularly encourage applications from those with the relevant skills and experience that will increase this representation. The appointment will of course be based on merit alone. Enhanced DBS will be required.
