Archdeacon Pastor

Wondering whether God may be calling you to step up to a wider sphere of ministry and responsibility?

Would you enjoy contributing to a forward thinking strategic team in an increasingly imaginative Diocese?

Do you have a heart for the well-being and effectiveness of clergy and laity?  

Do you approach leadership with a ‘How can we help you’ attitude?

Do you desire the flourishing of both traditional and emerging aspects of ministry and mission in the Church of England? 

Do you ‘get things done’, without fuss, but with humour and humility?
Then you may be the sort of person we are looking for!
