This job has now expired
Office Holder

We are: an Oxfordshire market town parish, committed to serving Wantage in the conscious presence of the love of God; seeking to build on our strengths, while increasing the breadth of appeal in services at our two churches; we recognise the need to blend our catholic tradition with an open, welcoming culture that offers diversity of expression, new forms of worship and accessibility.

You are: a passionate and outstanding pastor, with deep spirituality and committed to bringing beauty to worship, prayerfully embracing the sacramental life; warm, energetic, and collaborative, you know how to make worship and scripture engaging and inspiring; whatever your age, you possess a youthful enthusiasm and sense of fun that connects with those around you.

We will: support you personally, in love and prayer; and practically, through a dedicated team of officers and professional employees; our curate-in-training is a gifted and creative priest and we look to sustain our role as a training parish.

We should be delighted to meet you.
