The Benefice is seeking a Part-time Priest to join the team of ordained and lay ministers in the Benefice, to help us seek God in continuing to develop the life of each of our Churches as we seek to have active Churches in God’s Mission in their own contexts.
We are a Benefice of two multi-church Parishes: Kingsdown & Creekside and High Downs.
We have a vision for each Church to be church for their communities with all that it means to be Church with the clergy coming alongside the Churches in that aim.
There is a good team of lay ministers with a mix of Reader and Authorised Lay Ministers being part of the Ministry Leadership Team.
There are two PCCs, with each Church having a sub-committee (Kingsdown & Creekside) or DCC (High Downs) which clergy do not routinely attend, releasing them for the ministry to which they are called to.
The Benefice is prayerfully seeking:
Closing date: 9th September 2020
