Rector, Tilehurst St Michael, Archdeaconry of Berkshire

, ,

St Michael’s, Tilehurst is a well-established parish on the western side of the rapidly growing town of Reading. We long to grow more Christ-like in our service to each other and the community.  We are praying that God is calling a priest to work alongside us to achieve this.

We are looking for our new Rector to support and encourage all the good things that are happening here, but also to challenge us to explore possibilities for innovation and growth.

He/she will need to be:

  • Energetic and enthusiastic;
  • Comfortable with traditional styles of worship but having the imagination to experiment with different styles and forms of worship;
  • A person of prayer and spirituality who is able to help excite people about the possibilities of God;
  • A leader with a collaborative style who is not afraid to provide a loving challenge;
  • Interested in developing future leaders;
  • Someone with a heart for pastoral care, who encourages others to share this ministry.

We hope that this may be you.
