VICAR, Holy Apostles, Charlton Kings, Cheltenham and PRIEST in CHARGE, St Michael’s, Whaddon

Published: November 9, 2018

Help us to see our communities transformed by the love of Jesus…

A unique opportunity to combine the role of Vicar of a vibrant, mission focused, open evangelical church in one of the most attractive and prosperous parts of Cheltenham with Priest in Charge of a Local Ecumenical Project in an Urban Priority Area.

Holy Apostles has seen significant growth in recent years and is looking for a Vicar who will be able to build upon this growth as we seek to fulfil our purpose of ‘knowing Jesus and making Jesus known’ more effectively across our communities. Holy Apostles’ benefits from a reordered church, a recently reordered Church Centre and significant lay leadership support.

The role of Priest in Charge of St Michael’s is primarily one of oversight and support in conjunction with two excellent ordained colleagues (a Pioneer Minister and a Methodist Minister) who undertake much of the day to day ministry in the parish.

We are looking for someone who can combine these roles with integrity and confidence, an encourager and equipper of the ministry of others, a gifted communicator and leader, open to the Holy Spirit and comfortable with a variety of approaches to collective worship.

We welcome applications from women and men.

For an informal discussion about the role contact the Archdeacon of Cheltenham, the Ven Phil Andrew on 01452 835594 or 07498 052045
