Team Rector in the Witham & Villages Team Ministry
We long to grow God’s Kingdom in our growing town and six villages, situated between Chelmsford and Colchester.
We are looking for somebody to lead us, enable us and inspire us as our next Team Rector.
- Lead us as we seek God’s will and direction for our Team Ministry
- Enable us to discern what the Church can offer our town and villages
- Inspire us to be innovative and creative in how we grow our congregations
We have plenty of hopes for our future, not least focussing on our ministry to children, young people and families.
We are realistic about the challenges ahead and we know that we need to accept change to grow.
You will have day to day responsibility for St Nicolas’ Church, Witham (which is liberal catholic in tradition) and overall responsibility across the team (with village churches of a central tradition).
Your colleagues will be a Team Vicar, two Associate Priests and one Curate (who has a pioneer ministry within the team) plus supportive and valued lay ministers (including several Authorised Local Preachers and two Funeral Ministers) as well as active retired clergy.
