We are looking for someone to join us and inspire our mission to reach those who do not yet know the Good News of Jesus Christ in our fast-growing village.

We hope that our new Priest-in-Charge will bring:

  • Creative ideas and a passion for mission with proven relevance to family and/or children’s work.

  • The personality and charisma to connect with families, children and young people while also having a love for our older worshippers.

  • A sensitive pastoral attitude based on a strong personal faith in the Lord Jesus, and a desire to display his character in all aspects of life.

  • Gifts to teach the Bible in an expository and culturally relevant way, while respecting the authority of Scripture.

  • Relevant ministry experience, able to demonstrate leadership and organisation skills.

We can offer:

  • Exciting opportunities to build the church in a village which has grown significantly in recent years.

  • A strong core of committed members keen to embrace new initiatives and give the new priest our full support.

  • Lovely rural location close to the City of Oxford, with good transport links and several market towns close by.

  • A modern, well-appointed 5-bedroomed rectory with good local schools.
