Transforming the communities of Essex & East London through Christ’s presence

Part-Time, House for Duty Priest

Location: United Benefice of The Lavers and Matching

Town Mouse or Country Mouse?

Enjoy both as our new Part-Time, House for Duty Priest in the United Benefice of The Lavers and Matching (2 days + Sunday duties).

Situated in rural Essex but amazingly only 25 miles from London with easy connections via Underground (Central Line) and Main Line stations, and 17 miles from Chelmsford.

We are looking for an energetic and enthusiastic priest to work, collaboratively, with our Priest-in-Charge and Lay Leadership  Team as a Part-time, House for Duty colleague, in the service of our rural parishes.

Are you someone who would be willing to :

  • Teach us and inspire us to deepen our faith?
  • Challenge us in all aspects of our Church Life?
  • Engage creatively in the wider community?
  • Provide support to local church schools and encourage our young people to faith?

If you think this might be you, we would love to hear from you.
