House for Duty Associate Priest – Walbury Beacon Benefice


House for Duty Associate Priest
Walbury Beacon Benefice – West Berkshire

Six village church communities people want to be part of.

We are looking for a priest who will join us in living out the love of God in our benefice, share in the pastoral care that is at the heart of what we do, and use their gifts to extend our mission to this relatively new Benefice. A new Priest in Charge took up his post in late September 2017 and already exciting things are happening.  You will be joining a Ministry Team of five including another House for Duty Priest who are all committed to advancing the integration of the parishes of the Benefice.

We seek an Associate Priest who:

  • Will work 2 days per week plus Sundays and is flexible with
    traditional and new expressions of worship.
  • Is warm and welcoming and able to relate to a wide range of people, including children.
  • Is emotionally and spiritually mature.
  • Has a proven ability to work well in a team as well as using leadership gifts to facilitate change.

We offer our Associate Priest:

  • A loving and supportive church community.
  • The prayerful and active support of the Benefice Team.
  • Opportunities to share and nurture their own talents and gifts.
  • A beautiful four bedroomed house in West Woodhay in a tranquil rural setting.
  • The nearby town of Newbury with a wealth of amenities.
