St James’ Church Rowledge


London and Home Counties


Ref: JN011788

The Bishop of Guildford and the PCC seek to appoint a Vicar of Rowledge


What’s different about St. James’ Church? Well we’ve been told we’re…

“…a Church that doesn’t care!”


It’s not as bad as it sounds! One of our amazing young people told us what he loves about his church is that we don’t care that he’s different. We don’t care whether people are committed in their faith, or just exploring, prefer traditional or contemporary worship, are younger, older or somewhere in between. We do care that everyone (and we mean everyone) knows they are welcome and can encounter the transforming love of the Lord Jesus.


We are located in a semi-rural village on the edge of the glorious Alice Holt Forest, two miles from the craft town of Farnham and only an hour from London by train.


We seek a visionary leader who:

  • loves life, God and all God’s people
  • is enthusiastic, energetic, and will work well with our committed team
  • is an engaging Spirit-led and biblically based preacher who will help us grow in our faith
  • is prayerful and embraces both traditional and contemporary worship
  • is relational with a pastoral heart for young and old alike
  • will enjoy the opportunity for outreach into the local community
  • will continue to champion our excellent work with young people

In return we offer a loving and growing church community, with a united and supportive PCC. A modern, attractive vicarage set in a beautiful rural location. Excellent local schools and nursery, and a lively and friendly village community.
