Office Holder

We are looking for a new Vicar to lead us as we seek to develop our Mission and Vision for the Parish. We offer an opportunity which we hope you will find both exciting and challenging, as we launch a new facility, bring the parish closer together and look for new ways of being Church.

Situated close to Maidenhead, we are one parish with three churches, each with its own distinctive congregation and team of enthusiastic volunteers. You will have the help and co-operation of a small Ministry team, some committed Lay leaders and an active and supportive PCC.

We look forward to meeting you.

  • An enabler who will encourage us to share our strengths and ideas?

The Diocese of Oxford is a living, growing network of more than a thousand churches, chaplaincies and schools across the three counties of Berkshire, Buckinghamshire and Oxfordshire.

At the heart of our vision we discern a call to become a more Christ-like Church for the sake of God’s world: contemplative, compassionate and courageous.
