We are seeking an energetic, collaborative and outreach-focused Parish Priest, firm in their Christian faith and good at communicating it.
Boughton with Dunkirk, Hernhill and Goodnestone with Graveney are three parishes between Canterbury and Faversham, working together as one church, rooted in the communities we serve, and providing a wide variety of worship and fellowship.
The church family includes a wide variety of skills, and is highly committed. It includes two Readers, three churchwardens and a number of experienced lay members, working together as a team. There are many challenges, but this is a lively benefice, with lots going on, a strong faith and a commitment to work together constructively. There is an established pattern of services with rich variety and an openness to modify our approach to meet changing needs.
With schools, pubs and shops in the benefice, as well as a range of beautiful church buildings, there are all sorts of opportunities to engage with our diverse communities. We seek God’s way forward as we serve our part of Kent alongside our fellow Christians.
Our priorities for our new Priest will, among other things, be:-
