Job Description

We are a benefice of two thriving and growing villages in Somerset, with two listed churches. We are on the edge of the Mendip Hills and within easy reach of Weston- super- Mare, Bristol and Wells.

 

We are delighted to be witnessing evidence of “green shoots” as attendances are increasing. New people are attending our churches, particularly families with children coming for the first time. They have been attracted to Messy Church, our mid-week services and our Café and Family services in our churches and Church Hall.

 

We are seeking someone who would help to nurture these “green shoots”, and at the same time forge links with the families who will be arriving over the next two or three years in the major new housing developments in Winscombe and Sandford.

 

The qualities we are looking for in our new incumbent are someone who:

 

  • is a visionary leader, preacher and teacher
  • can work collaboratively with our Ministry Leadership Team and a band of enthusiastic and dedicated volunteers
  • grasps the opportunities that will arise with the advent of new families
    coming to the area
  • is a visible Christian witness in our communities.

Are you that someone?
