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)
