Team Vicar (House for Duty)

, ,

For the parish of Bledlow, Saunderton and Horsenden (Aylesbury Deanery)

Our parish is rural with three beautiful old churches and a community that includes commuters to London, only 40 minutes away by train from nearby Princes Risborough. The congregation covers a wide age range. Music forms an important part of our worship through an active choir that sings at least once a month.

We’re looking for a team vicar who will:

  • develop progressive and inclusive worship as well as holding traditional services
  • be creative in engaging younger families and children in regular worship with a view to their becoming active and long-standing members of the congregation
  • address the spiritual needs and development of all ages, in particular older children and young people
  • connect with those in the parish who aren’t currently involved in the church

The role comes with a modern, three-bedroom detached house with garden in Bledlow, a beautiful and lively village with an excellent pre-school and plenty of other social activities.

Closing date for applications: 30 November
