Job Description

These adjoining parishes along the A34 south of the city centre offer significant opportunity for missional presence in diverse Birmingham. Both parishes have ‘Outstanding’ church primary schools, a partnership central to mission and ministry.

St John’s historic building on the main A34 is ripe for development and home to different forms of outreach.

  • Developing appropriate contextual forms of Christian presence, mission and
    evangelism
  • Collaborating with others to help develop church, project and charity together
  • Ministering in a broadly open evangelical spirituality
  • Living and ministering in an urban, other-faith majority context
