We are looking for a prayerful, energetic, compassionate, pastoral priest who appreciates the joys (and challenges) of rural multi-parish benefices and wants to work within a supportive and pastoral team across seven churches in rural Oxfordshire, ten miles south-west of Oxford city centre.

We would like to find a new colleague to work with, whose skills, gifts, and experience we can celebrate and benefit from. Areas of specific responsibility can be adapted to suit the successful candidate, so that all the ministry team can work to their strengths.

This post provides a wonderful opportunity to be part of renewing and shaping the vision of church across seven villages where community really matters. We are in the fortunate position of being able to offer a well-appointed recently renovated vicarage in the heart of one of our warm and welcoming old Oxfordshire villages.

For an initial conversation or to arrange an informal visit, please contact the Rector, Revd. Talisker MacLeod on 07887 773579 or
