Office Holder

We are seeking to appoint an open-minded priest able to lead and encourage the team in mission and ministry in step with the rural nature of our communities.

  • Develop and provide a wide range of worship in different settings;
  • Help us to develop our own ‘ministerial’ skills;
  • Take leadership of our Christian Mission;
  • Join in with the community;
  • Help us to develop to our next stage of ministry;
  • Reinforce the strong links with the primary school at St Neot;
  • Work in our parish, not only with the long-established families, but also with the more recent arrivals, with their varied talents and experiences;
  • Work with people of all ages, committed Christians, the curious, the lapsed and the new.

To be successful in this role you will need to be:

  • Appreciative of rural ministry
  • An effective and imaginative communicator
  • Value and lead different worship styles
  • Gifted leader and team player

The Benefice consists of two parishes, three villages located in a picturesque part of Cornwall on Bodmin Moor.

We are looking forward to working with the new minister of these two parishes. We have some ideas of our own, but we would love to hear and support a vision that you have to make Jesus known. This is a great opportunity for a person with a heart for mission to lead this group of
parishes into the next stage of their lives together.

Deadline: Thursday 9th June

Interview and visit: 21st&22nd June 2022
