Glebe Committee – a call for expertise!

Do you have expertise in land management, property surveying, or are a finance expert, or have experience of running a business? Would you be able to offer your expertise to serve on the Glebe Committee?

The Glebe Committee manages the land and properties which the Diocese of Coventry owns. This is approximately 3,000 acres of agricultural land and a number of commercial and residential properties with significant asset value. Its members have expertise in financial and land management matters in a professional capacity (such as professional experience in property investment, land management or experience in running a business).

Members are required to attend 6 meetings per year, lasting up to 2 and half hours, which are held during normal working hours via Zoom. Once a year the Committee meets for a full day to enable them to visit a selection of properties under its management. The commitment is for 3 years and travel expenses will be reimbursed.

If you have skills and expertise in finance, property and land management or business and would like to contribute to the effective stewardship of the Diocesan Glebe we would love to hear from you.

You may be a newly qualified professional looking for an opportunity to widen your experience and also keen to serve the church in a voluntary capacity, or someone with many years’ experience who is keen to support the church in this important area of work, or someone who has recently retired looking to stay connected to your professional field whilst making an invaluable contribution in the Diocese.

For an application form, contact Jo Swain, Governance & Grants Officer. Contact by emailing: ruth.marlow@Coventry.anglican.org. Joanne.swain@Coventry.Anglican.org.

 

 

Associate Minister (HfD) - St Matthew Salford Priors

Are you called to minister in a village with great opportunities for missional advance and growth?

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

We have also put together a video which shows more about our parish! This can be found here on YouTube.
