The village of Moulton lies in the centre of Northamptonshire just north of the town of Northampton. The parish includes the historic village, the newer housing developments of Moulton Leys and Countess Manor, an industrial estate and a large area of rural land to the north of the village.
We are a church family who share a passion for faithful Bible teaching. Together we seek to serve God and our local community as we share the gospel with all kinds of people in our parish. We are exploring Biblical teaching around the gifts the Spirit brings to churches to build us up and drive us on. We are also active in our region and have just sent out a new church plant.
We are looking for a godly man gifted in Bible teaching to be our next vicar. We are looking for someone of proven leadership skill who can communicate well and has a warm and kind personality.
Our vicar will be supported by a large staff team including an Associate Vicar, Children and Families worker, Youth minister and Administrator, as well as a curate and Readers, alongside a godly and committed PCC and warden team.
Thank you for your interest. We hope you will take the time to look through our Parish Profile and we look forward to hearing from you.
