The Bishop of Gloucester, the Rt Revd Rachel Treweek, seeks to appoint a full time stipendiary priest with a pioneering spirit and a heart for mission to lead ministry within two new housing developments in the North Cotswolds Deanery, close to Stratford upon Avon.
The New Communities Minister will work with others already engaged in our vision of building a thriving Christian community, which is both Anglican and committed to working ecumenically, at the heart of the Meon Vale and Marston Mead Developments.
Could this be you? You will be responsible for the formation and implementation of a vision and strategy for developing mission and ministry in these new communities, working alongside established churches and fresh expressions. You will need to be an entrepreneurial priest, experienced in building community who will be able to engage from the start with our collaborative partners, including developers.
