The Church Union as patrons together with the Bishop of Gloucester seek to appoint as Vicar of this suburban Parish in West Cheltenham a mission-minded traditional Catholic Priest fully committed to mutual flourishing. Pastoral and Sacramental oversight of the parish has been entrusted to the Bishop of Ebbsfleet.
Firmly rooted in serving its Parish, and with a clear commitment to reaching out to all people with the love of God, the Church Community at Up Hatherley is praying for a Parish Priest who will be –
An enabler and encourager, who will help build up the People of God, deepen their Christian Discipleship, and strengthen outreach and mission in the community;
A man with a heart for the Parish and its people, of all ages and backgrounds, committed to seeing this Church grow;
A Traditionalist, ideally a member of The Society (SSWSH) and/or of the Society of the Holy Cross (SSC), rooted in Modern Anglo-Catholic worship but with a generous welcome to all, and open to the riches of other styles of worship.
