Job Description

The Bishop of Gloucester and the Lord Chancellor seek to appoint an engaging and imaginative priest to this beautiful benefice with churches who desire to share God’s love with everyone in these communities. To this end we seek a person who:


  • Has spiritual depth, is secure in faith and confident in their hope and calling
  • Will lead the benefice in seeking God’s vision, purpose and priorities, with a heart for the renewal of the rural church
  • Will enjoy getting to know people of all ages, and support the commitment to schools and young people
  • Can encourage and develop the gifts of all and will nurture prayer and discipleship.


Ministry here is collaborative and shared with a ministry team, a
parish office and part-time administrator, and a relatively newly formed
Beacon mission team. The benefice partners with ‘PSALMS’ in youth and sports ministry.
