South Cotswolds Team Ministry: House for Duty Team Vicar

The Bishop of Gloucester, the Right Reverend Rachel Treweek, seeks to appoint an imaginative, mission minded, house for duty priests to join our mission in the beautiful Cotswolds. In line with our diocesan vision process, centred around Jesus’ offer of ‘life to the full’ in John 10:10, we are looking to appoint ministers who will help us develop new and liberating models of leadership and ministry in these village settings.
