VICAR of Nailsworth with Shortwood, Horsley and Newington Bagpath with Kingscote

Published: July 13, 2018

This Benefice offers fascinating and rewarding ministry with a mix of market town and rural villages for a priest with a pastoral heart committed to outreach and engagement with the wider community.

In the profile members of the existing congregations write that they want to share their faith with the community’ but they ‘struggle to know how best to do so’. Could you be the person to help them become more confident in their faith, look out and engage and grow?

There is an excellent modern Vicarage in the heart of the town, good schools and a great community to be part of in a very attractive area. The Diocese is a good place to minister, we have a clear vision and a positive culture committed to the wellbeing of all our clergy. We are small enough to know each other well, large enough to be well resourced. You will find good friendship and support here.

Letter from Bishop Robert
