This job has now expired
Southend, Garsington

The ODBF, Ripon College Cuddesdon and Trinity College, Oxford are seeking to appoint an incumbent for the Benefice of Garsington, Cuddesdon and Horspath.

We are looking for a new vicar to rejoice with us, to worship with us and to pray with us as we move full of hope into the future.

We are three villages on the outskirts of Oxford with faithful and loyal congregations who enjoy a friendly relationship and fellowship in the Gospel. Ripon College Cuddesdon, a centre of theological learning and training, is in one of our villages.

Are you a priest with a pastoral heart who will walk with us in our pilgrimage, encourage us in our spiritual lives and share our ministry of witness and compassion?

Are you:

  • a person of spiritual integrity,
  • a team player with a genuine love of people of all ages, ready to take us on as we are,
  • eager to worship and keen to preach in a range of styles,
  • willing to engage with our two local Church primary schools,
  • and excited at the challenge of new housing areas?

If so, we would love to hear from you!
