St John the Baptist, Frome


South West

Ref: JN012611

This church has stood prominently in the heart of this popular market town, for over a thousand years. With loyal and supportive disciples we work closely with other Christian congregations to serve our community.

We welcome applications from experienced priests who will:

  • Bring pioneering vision, able to work harmoniously with the other priests in our town and Deanery.

  • Share the wider vision, enabling God’s Spirit to work amongst children, families and young people.

  • Inspire our worship, honouring our traditional Anglican liturgy.

  • Be a wise and gentle leader in our mission to spread the faith and grow the church.

  • Enjoy their ministry, engaging with all in our growing community.

What we offer:

  • The opportunity to be part of the new Deanery vision, in which the four Anglican churches will be served by three Incumbents who have an appetite for working closely together.

  • A committed lay team: PCC, Reader, part-time administrator and willing disciples.

  • A Grade II* listed building full of prayer; our foundation dates back to St Aldhelm in the 7th Century.

  • An Eco church, an Inclusive church, part of the Major Churches Network.

  • A vicarage offering modern living accommodation, situated in a secluded location within five minutes’ walk of the church and town centre.
