ASSOCIATE PRIEST (House for Duty) Benefice of Cherbury with Gainfield

, ,

We are seeking a priest who is a good communicator with spiritual depth and pastoral experience who enjoys working within a dynamic and supportive team, and has an affinity to rural and village communities.

Our beautifully located benefice, lying between Oxford and Faringdon, is seeking to appoint a prayerful and compassionate clergy colleague to join our ministry team (2 days equivalent per week plus Sundays).

Areas of responsibility will depend on your ministerial gifts and skills, focusing around ministry with the older members of our congregations and villages, committed pastoral visiting, and encouragement of wider lay church involvement.

This post provides a wonderful opportunity to be part of a new growth initiative of church outreach across seven rural villages which are undergoing a period of steady and exciting transformation. We are in the fortunate position of being able to offer a well-appointed recently renovated vicarage in the heart of one of our warm and welcoming old Oxfordshire villages.

If you are interested in ministering in a community that is entering a new phase of its spiritual life, then we would love to hear from you.

For an initial conversation, please contact the Rector, Reverend Talisker Tracey-MacLeod on 01865 596224 or beneficecg@gmail.com
