Team Vicar (House for Duty) – Cherwell Valley Benefice


We are a welcoming and active benefice, situated 12 miles from Oxford and 5 miles from Bicester in beautiful countryside.   Our benefice is made up of seven churches; six in rural villages and one on a growing housing development. We have a rich diversity of styles of worship from traditional Anglican to informal Evangelical. Our new Team Vicar will join us at a key time, as we reach out with the gospel to our communities, new and old.

We are looking for a new Team Vicar who is:

  • Comfortable leading both traditional and contemporary styles of worship
  • Committed to faithful Bible teaching and is able to engage with all ages and levels of faith
  • Passionate about reaching out with the good news and growing congregations
  • Willing to walk with us on our spiritual journey and nurture the ministry of all believers
  • Gentle, respectful, supportive and brings people together with common purpose
  • Able to give two days per week plus Sundays.
