Do you sense God’s call to lead a dynamic and community-oriented estate church into the next chapter of growth?

Bestwood Park Church, already hosting an Eden Team and established in a new building, are looking for a key ordained leader to set the direction for growing new disciples and to grasp the opportunities to extend God’s kingdom in this area of Nottingham.

You will be working as part of an Anglican/Methodist LEP, and will be the main resident minister to shape and oversee the mission on the ground, in partnership with Methodist colleagues and others.

As a diocese we are seeking to invest in the wider area of Bestwood, so we envisage developing this role to become the key leader in mission for the southern half of Bestwood/Top Valley and to oversee an ordained associate appointment at neighbouring St Philip’s Top Valley.

At Bestwood Park Church, you will join a Christian community that is warm and friendly, that is active with the wider community, loves contemporary forms of worship, is passionate about being a church that makes a difference where it is, and is ready for a new season of growth.

Please see the Parish Profile

We are looking for a person of prayer, vision, creativity, compassion and faith who is very relatable to a diverse community and is capable of sound leadership and supervision of others as they are released in their gifts. Having a clear grasp of resource management will also be key.
