The parish of Penn fields is looking to appoint a charismatic evangelical Resident Minister who will come to the church of St Joseph’s to inspire us and challenge us to unite around Jesus and continue to see God’s Kingdom grow in our community.
The role of Resident Minister will also be an Associate minister within The Penn Fields parish. The minister will have the day-to-day oversight of St Joe’s and the team there as well as contributing to, and benefitting from, the wider ministry team across the parish, working in partnership with that team.
A four bedroom detached house goes with the post.
For an informal discussion please contact the Parish Vicar, Revd Peter Smith
About the Diocese
Lichfield Diocese is one of the most diverse dioceses in the country. Rolling countryside and vibrant inner-city life nestle together in a region that takes in Staffordshire, the Potteries of Stoke-on-Trent, most of Shropshire and bustling Black Country centres including Walsall and Wolverhampton. The only thing we don’t have is the sea!
Our shared diocesan vision extends an invitation to all to “Come follow Christ in the footsteps of St Chad”.
As we follow Christ in the footsteps of St Chad, we pray that the two million people in our diocese encounter a church that is confident in the gospel, knows and loves its communities, and is excited to find God at work already in the world. We pray for a church that reflects the richness and variety of those communities and partners with others in seeking the common good, working for justice as a people of hope.
