Job Description

A newly united benefice in rural north-east Essex is seeking a new Vicar


We are looking for an open-hearted and collaborative vicar to lead us as we start our journey as a united benefice in this lovely corner of rural Essex. You would be living in the historic small town of Coggeshall, with a flock spread across several surrounding villages.


Could you:

  • Develop and drive our mission in our communities as we strive to grow congregations and bring new members of all ages to know the love of Christ?
  • Lead a dedicated team of ordained and lay ministers, and inspire a large and enthusiastic group of volunteers and ordinands?
  • Build upon the strong relationships with the schools in the Benefice and be a visible, nurturing presence for our young people?
  • Grasp the practical challenges of a multi-church Benefice which includes several medieval churches and chapels?
  • Throw yourself enthusiastically into a busy church calendar of events and celebrations to ensure we remain at the heart of our vibrant communities?
  • Guide us as a family on our journey to know God better day by day?


If the answer is ‘yes,’ then it’s time to apply.
