We wish to appoint a House for Duty Team Vicar to have pastoral oversight in the single parish of Cheddington with Mentmore within the wider Cottesloe Team in rural North Buckinghamshire.

Our two villages, Cheddington (pop. 1850) and Mentmore (pop. 370) both have active village communities and Cheddington has a station on the main Euston to Milton Keynes rail line with fast access to London. Both villages are within easy reach of Milton Keynes, Hemel Hempstead, and Aylesbury, where there are wide-ranging social and leisure facilities.

We seek a priest who will work with us to enable our vision by:

  • prayerfully ministering the love of God and the Good News of Jesus to the people of Cheddington and Mentmore
  • continuing to bring our church into the centre of village life and promoting the interests of the Church
  • nurturing and growing our church communities
  • helping us become financially sustainable church communities
  • being comfortable with various forms of worship, and exploring different worship styles
  • supporting and nurturing the laity to use their gifts
  • building on the current work to encourage our family service
  • building on our close ecumenical relationship with the Cheddington Methodist Chapel
  • sharing strengths and talents with the Cottesloe Team
  • leading us through the formulation of our new MAP

This person should enjoy entering the villages' social life and activities.
