for

Four traditional rural parishes in West Oxfordshire

Two full days per week plus Sundays

We are four friendly village communities, seeking a vicar to help us
continue our Christian witness for the coming years.

We wish our vicar to help us:

  • promote the mission of the church in our villages
  •  work with faithful, committed and loyal PCCs and congregations, assisted by our Authorised Lay Minister and with some LLM support, to enrich our faith and promote co-operation between the parishes
  •  communicate the work of the church to other members of our communities
  •  develop links with the other representative bodies (Parish Council, WI, etc)

He or she will be:

  • an inspiring preacher
  • a people person sympathetic to rural life and keen to participate in it
  • able to be flexible to different approaches to worship
  • a leader keen to help us inspire others to join our congregations
  • able to relate to a range of people, especially the younger generation

Please also have a sense of humour!

A modern 4-bedroom vicarage in the heart of the village of Great Coxwell, with open views to the countryside, awaits the successful candidate
