Associate Vicar Holy Trinity, Leicester

Posted 25 days agoExpires in 9 days

A spirit-led leader, who is grounded in prayer and scripture with a love for the lost and God’s people, is sought as our new Associate Vicar with responsibility for evangelism and discipleship. Our vision, as the largest Anglican congregation in the City of Leicester, is to ‘Fling wide the Gates’ and to be a community of missional disciples from all nations that will transform the City, and beyond, with the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

The Associate Vicar will be a member of a large and dynamic staff team, with a specific role for overseeing the evangelistic life and ministry of Holy Trinity Church as well as our growing number of missional communities and overseeing our other mission initiatives and links.

For an informal conversation about the post, please contact

Revd Elaine Sutherland, Vicar of Holy Trinity (07747 466865 :

Or the Archdeacon of Leicester: Ven. Richard Worsfold (07487 616648 :

Holy Trinity Leicester is a lively, mission-shaped Resource Church in the heart of multi-cultural Leicester, with a congregation of 550 members and a large, dynamic staff team. We are seeking a new Associate Vicar with a passion and gifting for evangelism and mission to join our confident and creative Evangelical Charismatic church.

We expect this would be a suitable post for someone after their curacy but we are open to people at different stages of their ministry, lay or ordained. Ideally we are looking for someone with experience of ministry with young adults / students as this is a key constituency at Holy Trinity and experience of leading people to Christ from other faiths.

The post is open to anyone who meets the requirements of the role but applications from female or BAME candidates will be received favourably as these are under represented on our Senior Leadership Team.

Oversee the evangelistic life and ministry of Holy Trinity Church

  • Develop an evangelistic vision and strategy for the whole church
  • Encourage evangelism in different ministry areas such as Kings Coffee House, Trinity Money Advice, Foodbank, etc.
  • Oversee the running of the Alpha Course.
  • Train and equip people in their every-day witness.
  • Raise up other evangelists and mentor them.
  • As part of this we anticipate this person will support the work of our part-time Associate Vicar for Resource Church.
  • Develop resources to serve this ministry

Oversee Holy Trinity’s Mission Shaped Communities

Holy Trinity currently has 18 missional communities which we have a vision to multiplying to 25 in the next 18 months.

Oversee mission initiatives and links

Holy Trinity is a community which encourages innovation and is seeking to develop a culture of entrepreneurial risk taking in order to see new missional initiatives birthed and to allow the Holy Spirit to lead us into new ways of connecting with the city around us.

As this post is part of an ongoing and emerging initiative, the exact responsibilities may change over time.

  • Will be a leader whose life and ministry is Spirit-led, grounded in prayer, scripture with a love for the lost and God’s people
  • Can both challenge, inspire and enable us to deepen and widen our discipleship
  • Will encourage and equip us in our mission to see more people come to know Jesus Christ as their Lord and Saviour.
  • Will work together well in leading and being part of teams, including the Senior Leadership Team
