We are looking for someone to lead an established coastal Team Ministry in the Harwich Deanery in northeast Essex. We want our church to grow and we long to make new disciples, reaching into the forgotten corners of Harwich with the good news of Jesus Christ.
Our team is made up of All Saints’, St Nicholas’ and St Michael’s Churches in the communities of Ramsey, Dovercourt and Harwich. Harwich has a long maritime history, and those links are very much part and parcel of the fabric of parish and church life.
We seek the right person not only for the three Churches, but for the whole of the Harwich community. We are looking for someone who will bring:
We can offer a friendly and mutually supportive ministry team (including our Pioneer Team Vicar), a committed and faithful group of core lay people in each church and a modernised detached Rectory near Dovercourt Bay.
