In the Diocese of Chelmsford we recognise that the rural church is a place of challenge and optimism, faithfulness and innovation. It is a place where discipleship is nurtured and active participation expected. It has also given rise to many of the recent initiatives such as lay ministry teams, locally deployed priests and lighter governance structures. It is literally at the cutting edge.

Are YOU being called to the cutting edge where the air is fresh, the grass is green and church is at the heart of the community?

We would love to welcome you to the beautiful North Essex village of Thaxted on Tuesday 23 July 2019 to discover the opportunities for Rural Ministry in the Diocese of Chelmsford.

In Chelmsford Diocese we offer:

  • Scope for developing new and innovative ways of proclaiming the gospel of Christ in rural communities whilst treasuring and affirming existing congregations.
  • Support from a dedicated Diocesan Rural Team.
  • A genuine desire to recognise, nurture and develop the gifts of our clergy in responding to the changing needs of rural communities.
  • Rural life within easy reach of London.

The Bishop of Colchester and Archdeacons look forward to introducing a range of rural ministry opportunities presently available in the diocese.
