Vicar of Old Brampton and Great Barlow and Priest in Charge

Posted 25 days agoExpires in 7 days
Brampton, Chesterfield

Our three churches and our parishes are diverse and yet complementary in their locations, demographics, catchment areas and styles of worship, and are keen to work even more closely together under your guidance, whilst retaining our individual parish identities and traditions.

Located to the western side of Chesterfield, we are adjacent to the beautiful Peak District National Park.

For you, we will:

  • pray with you and for you and your family, supporting you as we work alongside you.
  • honour your ministry being shared across three churches and communities
  • care for you and your family in the love of Christ.

We are seeking someone who will:

  • inspire, challenge and most importantly, love us – for who we are as well as who, in Christ, we can become!
  • help us to maintain our distinctiveness whilst enabling us to work more closely together
  • inspire us through energy, commitment and a good sense of humour to grow in worship, discipleship and mission
  • work with us to increase our impact on the communities we serve and to reach out to those whom, for whatever reason, are not currently attracted to worship with us
  • challenge us to explore and embrace change in the way we do things and the areas in which we’re active
  • be creative, but flexible and prepared to “muck in”
  • be a gifted and enthusiastic preacher and teacher and at all levels from children through older members of our communities

enjoy leading teams of active volunteers both in developing our mission and in welcoming people to our churches for weddings and baptisms, and supporting families through funeral ministry.

During COVID 19 restrictions, we are currently inviting expressions of interest in this post. We would be pleased to receive these by  2nd June 2020, after which time the situation will be reviewed. Anyone who applies will be kept informed of progress and next steps.
