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

Priest-in-Charge, Tye Green St Stephen w Netteswell St Andrew

Location: Harlow

The urban parish of St Stephen’s is situated on the south side of Harlow. Predominantly residential in character, it is a sociologically mixed area and includes some pockets of deprivation. In the last five years, its developing and faithful congregation has grown in numbers, in depth of discipleship and in confidence, and it has produced a significant number of vocations to lay and ordained ministry. The parish is ripe for further growth in mission, and one of its greatest strengths is its strong, welcoming and inclusive heart for the local community it serves and prays for.

Are you:

  • Passionate about continuing to develop St Stephen’sthrough deepening discipleship, fostering vocations and further developing lay leadership
  • Committed to strengthening relationships with the wider community – especially through its schools– and enabling those who follow Jesus to become a distinctive and Spirit-filled presence in that community
  • Energised by the prospect of serving this sociologically/ethnically diverse and sometimes challenging part of Harlow
  • Eager to work flexibly with neighbouring parishes and community organisations to make an impact for the Gospel across the south of Harlow Deanery

If this is you, then please get in touch with us to find out more.

Closing date:  28th May 2019​​​​           Interview: 20th June 2019
