Job Description

Suburban parish of 5000 in West London: Central Tradition

 

Are you: Dynamic, prayerful, up for a challenge and full of ideas for making our church more relevant, informative and exciting?

 

We are a well-established church with an ER of 145 and a Sunday worshipping community of 100 or so; a congregation that focuses on worship, fellowship and community, in a style that is “neither high nor low but with a degree of formality”. We’re open-minded and inclusive, celebrating the ministry of all God’s people. We aim to teach and model a credible and informed faith in a changing, diverse and complex world. We wish to evolve in our faith, increase our prayerfulness and share the love of Christ in our community.

 

We need:

  • An experienced, committed, prayerful and compassionate priest to support our growth as confident Christians
  • An inspiring leader who can connect with people at all levels, encouraging involvement and contribution of others
  • Someone who, according to our Junior Church, can be “cheeky and fun” – and is willing to join in the nativity play!
  • Someone who can relate the Bible intelligently and creatively to modern life
  • Someone who is keen to seek the will of God and to shape our minds and hearts to serve Him; mindful of our existing community and faith but ready to lead us to new ways to put our faith into action both in and outside the church.
  • A breath of fresh air to stir us up and help us evolve.

 

Good buildings. 6 bedroom vicarage, newly refurbished.

SSM clergy team. Lay Ministers.

Thriving Junior Church. Attached Japanese congregation.

Good community links.

Multicultural context. Excellent local CofE Schools.
