Team Vicar

St John’s and St Luke’s are at an exciting time in their development and growth, and are looking for a team vicar who, while having primary responsibility for the St Luke’s congregation, will bring to bear his/her gifts and experience in ministry across the parish.

We are praying for a person who is…

  • a Spirit-led, prayerful leader who works well in a team and is willing to try new things;
  • skilled in and enjoys relating to families, young people and schools;
  • passionate about church growth and helping people discern and use their gifts.

We offer…

  • welcoming congregations of all ages;
  • the opportunity to join with us as we finalise and implement our Mission Action Plan;
  • churches well-rooted in and wanting to serve the local community;
  • numerous opportunities for discipling people and developing ministries;
  • plenty of prayerful support;
  • a modern 4 bedroom vicarage; excellent schools and good transport links.
