Priest in Charge at Great Dunmow and Barnston
Location: North Essex
Is God calling you to ministry in this lovely part of North West Essex?
The two churches in our benefice serve a growing market town and a small village nearby. It is an attractive and friendly place to live and work and you will be surrounded by supportive and enthusiastic church members. Recent housing developments have resulted in a rapidly growing population which has not engaged with the local churches, creating an exciting outreach opportunity.
We are looking for someone who:
- will develop the gifts and foster discipleship within our church communities and who will lead us on the next stage of our journey
- shares our enthusiasm for outreach, to make Christ better known in our parishes and to welcome all into the life of the church
- will nurture our churches, leading different styles of prayer and worship and building on our tradition
- has enthusiasm for and skill in bringing families into the heart of our churches
Our Parish Profile contains more detailed information about this exciting opportunity. You are encouraged to contact any one of the following to discuss the opportunity: the Archdeacon of Stansted, The Ven. Robin King (to email him, click HERE); the Area Dean, The Rev. Cilla Hawkes (to email her, click HERE); a member of the Ministry Team of the parishes, The Rev. Rosemary Drew (to email her, click HERE).
Closing date for applications: 9 February 2020
A day of exploration and interviews will be held on 2 March 2020
