This is a unique opportunity to join a ministry team, bringing together all the Anglican churches in Penarth, to serve communities across the town, and further the vision of Llandaff Diocese for the whole of this area.
The appointment of Vicar for Penarth All Saints is being made during a year of transition for the whole of Llandaff Diocese. For Penarth, this will mean the formation of a new single Ministry Area, which brings together the two substantial parishes of All Saints and its immediate neighbour, the parish of Penarth & Llandough. The transition will be completed by 1st January 2022. The new Vicar, therefore, can expect from the outset to be working closely with clerical and lay colleagues, to establish and grow new patterns for ministry and evangelism in this wider context.
Our aim: both individually and collectively, is to be and to do what Jesus sent us to be and to do in the world.
Our Mission: is to be a Christ centred community that ministers to the people of this parish by:
Telling the joyful story by enabling the worship of God - Father, Son and Holy Spirit, promoting God’s Word to everyone, of all ages and backgrounds
Growing the Kingdom of God by helping people to find and follow Jesus in an
ever-changing world and being a way through which the life-changing power of the Holy Spirit is released in our Parish and beyond.
Building our capacity for good as a caring and sharing church community we set a positive example in our local community.
We are looking for someone who will engage and welcome all people, show ambition and energy to lead the Ministry Area, inspire and empower God’s people to flourish in their gifts and in his service.
Closing date: 27 November 2020
