  • the ability to preach the Word and expound the teaching of the Church in ways that will enrich our life together
  • the desire and ability to minister effectively in the local community and church school
  • a vision for developing the joint benefice with St Thomas the Martyr and the skills to manage and facilitate its reordering and future growth.
