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

Team Rector in the Wickford & Runwell Team Ministry

Location: Wickford and Runwell

We are looking for a Team Rector for our growing commuter-belt market town, situated in South Essex between Basildon and Chelmsford. This is an exciting opportunity for someone to provide leadership and supervision to our team during a time of transition. Our parish has a liberal catholic heritage, but our three congregations come from diverse backgrounds, both within and beyond the Church of England.

Do you feel called to:

  • help us continue our strong tradition of welcome and inclusion for all
  • help develop our existing lay and ordained ministry team
  • enable and encourage us all in ministry and mission, both within the church and in the wider community
  • creatively imagine new ways of growing in faith, nurturing and expanding our all-age congregations

Interviews will be held all day Monday 22nd March 2021

An application form can be obtained from the office of the Archdeacon of Southend, and Archdeacon Mike would be happy to have an informal conversation with you about the vacancy, either by email or telephone. The Archdeacon's Lodge, 459 Rayleigh Road, Benfleet, SS7 3TH (01268 779345),

Closing Date: 12 noon Tuesday 16th February 2021
