Team Vicar, Thatcham Team Ministry – St Barnabas Church, Archdeaconry of Berkshire


Is God prompting you to change direction?

Are you ready for a new challenge in 2019 and beyond?

Our base is at Thatcham Park Primary School – we have a leadership team, and congregation in place. We are looking for a colleague who will help us to live our faith beyond our comfort zone, and lead us out to fulfil our mission statement ‘Serving to Build Community’. Our new Team Vicar will also contribute to our work with young people and schools, and share in the occasional offices at St Mary’s church.

Are you right for us?

For St Barnabas the pastoral care of people, and the nurture of relationships with God and with each other, is at the heart of our church community. Could you help us to grow that community even without a traditional church building?

If you are still reading this far, you will find out much more about us, including our profile and all the usual stuff you see in these adverts at or by calling the Team Rector, the Revd Mark Bennet on 01635 867342, email:

Informal visits to the parish are strongly encouraged and can be arranged by contacting the Team Rector.
