Job Description


Are you looking for a new opportunity and a fresh challenge? We are a parish with a heart for “Sharing the embrace of God with all”, and are praying for a new vicar who will help shape ministry and mission at an exciting time.



We’re praying for a new priest who will:

  • lead by example and equip us all in mission, seeing all ages and stages of life explore and find faith;
  • help us be more prayerful and ‘raise the spiritual temperature’ of the church;
  • guide us as we continue to be a real and tangible presence in the communities we serve, especially with local schools;
  • equip us to grow creatively and confidently in our worship life;
  • work collaboratively across the two churches who make up Harlescott parish.

We have much to offer, including a committed ministry team (Associate Vicar, Curate, Reader, Pastoral Minister and wardens), a warm and welcoming community, and opportunities to work with other local churches. The Vicarage is a modern four bed-roomed house next to Holy Spirit Church in the north of the market town of Shrewsbury, with good access to local schools and excellent links to the wider Shropshire area.
