THE BISHOP OF SOUTHWARK AND SIMEON’S TRUSTEES

 

wish to appoint

 

VICAR OF THE PARISH OF HERNE HILL

 

Could you lead us on the next stage of our missional growth?

 

We are an open evangelical parish with two churches. Our growing congregations span a wide range of ages, are ethnically and socially diverse, and enjoy different styles of worship. We have a committed team of honorary assistant ministers and readers, a full-time youth and children’s worker, and administrative support. We have strong relationships with our church primary school. Our finances are in good order and we keep on top of our building maintenance.

 

Our new vicar will be someone:

  • with an evangelical faith but open to other traditions

  • who has spiritual discernment and is grounded in listening to God, and

  • who demonstrates a personal commitment to prayer and recognises the power and significance of prayer in their ministry.

We are seeking someone who will be able creatively to navigate us through our continued growth into a larger church, and through our exploration of our calling to mission in the community.
