Job Description

Combe Down with Monkton Combe and South Stoke, Bath.  

Joint Patrons


The Oxford Churches Trust Mr Christopher Samler


We are a United Benefice of three parishes, worshipping in four churches, with a common vision. We are “Word and Spirit” churches with a combined attendance of around 370 people. Through clear Bible teaching, worship and ministry led by the Holy Spirit, we want to grow in faith. We believe Jesus is the Hope of the World and our desire is to bring others to know Him too.


We are looking for a vicar who will preach unchanging biblical truth, led by the Holy Spirit and who is open and sensitive to the gifts of the Holy Spirit and keen to encourage these gifts in our wider congregations.


The Benefice is likely to welcome over 1,000 new families over the next ten years, so we need someone with a heartfelt passion for mission beyond the walls of our churches, who will lead, inspire and challenge us to put our faith into action across our Benefice.


We have a well-developed lay ministry and we believe that every member has something to give. We need a vicar who promotes this every member ministry under the Holy Spirit’s direction, and who also has the qualities to manage a large staff team.


Could the Lord be calling you to join us?
