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

Priest in Charge (House for Duty) St. Augustine of Canterbury, North Springfield

Location: Chelmsford

We are seeking an Anglican priest to serve in North Springfield, an area in the north of the City of Chelmsford. St. Augustine's is part of a local ecumenical partnership consisting of Anglican, Methodist, URC and Free Church members and worships in a modern church building which it shares with the Catholic congregation.

The congregation of St. Augustine's have spent time discerning their future mission and are seeking a priest who will support them in the key themes they have identified, as they seek to move forward in mission.

Would you be able to support them and lead them, as they seek to work on these key themes?

1. We should maintain our ecumenical, inclusive character and our openess to progressive theology and thinking

2. We need to build our connections with (and relevance to) our community

3. We should develop and nurture our members and their ministries and strengthen further the church community and organisation

4. We welcome opportunities to partner with others, especially in the rapidly growing Beaulieu Park, next door to our parish


Interviews will be held all day on Thursday 13th June 2019

An application form can be obtained from the office of the Archdeacon of Chelmsford

Telephone: (01245) 258257



If you would like to have an informal conversation about this post, please either telephone or email 

Closing Date: 12 noon on Thursday 2nd May 2019
