Associate Minister (HfD) - St Matthew Salford Priors

As a part of the Heart of England Benefice the people of St Matthews Salford Priors have benefitted in all sorts of ways, including sharing of resources. At the same time, they have also found themselves wanting to do more, to serve more, to be more, and to develop the distinctive characteristics of their life in Christ. So they are keen to expand their ministry with the appointment of a charismatic evangelical associate minister to take them forward in new ways.

We welcome applications from gently charismatic evangelical priests who are: 

- Pastoral evangelists who would love to exercise these gifts in a village context, with a particular heart and passion for reaching families, including via schools. 

- Able to ensure worship is attractive and relevant to the whole village community, including younger families.  We would also welcome being sensitively moved forwards in understanding and greater experience of spiritual gifts in worship, mission and everyday life.   

- Able to prioritise ministry within one village whilst working within the relational dynamics of a wider benefice.  This will include an ability to gently and sensitively handle some issues of past hurt which can still affect our present reality.  

- Fun to be with and enjoy working with and empowering lay leaders.

Informal conversations welcome:

Vicar - St Matthew’s, St Oswald’s and Overslade

St Matthew’s, St Oswald’s and Overslade are a people growing in mission and ministry. One of their constituent churches has had a long history of growth but, as you will read in the profile, there have been many developments which, combined together, have taken their toll on the congregation. That being said, they are in good heart and are seeing the early signs of growth.

We are therefore seeking an experienced charismatic evangelical minister of the gospel to help to build on the progress made in preparing for growth, to develop the ongoing projects and commitment to serve the local community, and to support the congregation with their evangelistic endeavours.

We welcome applications from evangelical priests with incumbency experience and/or other relevant employment experience who:

- Can help to lead us into new growth.

- Will listen, love and lead well.

- Are passionate and gifted in both community engagement and evangelism, with a track record of leading people of all ages to faith in Christ and on-going discipleship.

- Are skilled in identifying, developing and empowering lay leaders.

- Can oversee the review and development of our buildings and resources to enhance our welcome, mission and worship.

Informal conversations are very welcome. Please contact:

Vicar - Camp Hill

Camp Hill in Nuneaton has seen some significant positive change over the last few years, with a serious programme of regeneration – change which is still ongoing.  St Mary and St John’s want to be part of that positive transformation – an aspiration I endorse with enthusiasm.  There will be some hard work involved in a combination of congregational growth, building development and community engagement, but our hope and prayer is that this combination will appeal to a motivated and able Society Priest, who, as it says in the Person Specification, ‘can lead the church into a vibrant new future’.  There really is a great opportunity here to revive the life of the Church and to restore something of the missionary energy with which St Mary’s and St John’s began when the estate was first built.

We welcome applications from priests in the Anglo-Catholic tradition registered with The Society (SSWSH), or who are willing to do so, and who: 

- Are a positive role model to the congregation and wider Diocese in growing a healthy church in the Anglo-Catholic tradition, in an area undergoing significant regeneration, with the Eucharist at the heart of worship, contributing to the already positive influence Society churches are bringing to the health and diversity of the wider Diocese. 

- Value and enjoy working in schools, maintaining our current links, and can translate that work into reaching and attracting young families. 

- Can lead the church into a vibrant new future, including some major renovation, refurbishment and possible re-building of parts of the church plant to enhance church growth and community development initiatives.

- Do not mind starting with a small base of people! 

- Are able to laugh and have fun with us and the local community!

Informal conversations welcome.  Please contact: Archdeacon Missioner, Ven Morris Rodham, on tel: 07506731892 (Morris.Rodham@CovCofE.org) or Acting Area Dean, Rev Kate Massey, on tel: 02476 372089 (revkatemassey@gmail.com) or Bishop of Ebbsfleet Representative, Fr Dexter Bracey on tel:  02476 711687  (dexter_bracey@yahoo.co.uk)
