Email: Bishop of Stafford

Deadline: 22nd February 2023

Interviews: 9th March 2023


We are seeking a House for Duty Priest to help us share the good news of Christ, not least through our outstanding Church of England schools and a focus on the growth of our churches.

This is an exciting post for someone who has a desire to minister through rural parish teams. There is huge potential for growth across our 3 churches, creating strong and sustainable individual worshipping communities. Outreach is a key priority for us.

We are praying for a Priest who is:

  • Community orientated with an active personal faith and the ability to encourage and develop faith in others.
  • A collaborative team player who can lead by example, with a rural pastoral heart, able to support and inspire colleagues in the ministry team and especially potential lay leaders
  • Keen to help develop our visions for the future and encourage fresh expressions of church across our individual rural parishes.

We can offer:

  • a great ministry team with a good mix of gifts and church traditions
  • youthful congregation members with energy, ideas and a willingness to look outward
  • a 4-bedroom home with office in rural Staffordshire overlooking the Dove valley
  • a wide variety of community types, spread across our three rural parishes

All applicants should normally have 3 years’ experience in the Church of England or another Anglican church in the British Isles.
