The Lord Chancellor and Bishop of Peterborough seek to appoint a new Rector of the benefice of Astwick Vale in the Deanery of Brackley. The Benefice consists of 5 parishes in a 5 mile triangle located on the edge of the Cotswolds. The parishes are midway between Oxford, Northampton and Stratford upon Avon on the M40 with good direct rail links for London and Birmingham.
We are a rural benefice encompassing vibrant villages with strong communities, who need spiritual and practical leadership. Our younger children and families are our priority; they need enthusiastic involvement. We continue to serve an older generation both in our churches and in homes with visits and pastoral support. We would like to welcome new members of our congregations as well as be more involved in our communities.
For an informal discussion about the role, please contact The Revd Matthew Robinson, Rural Dean of Brackley at firstname.lastname@example.org
Applications preferred from our website Diocese of Peterborough | Vacancies (peterborough-diocese.org.uk) or by emailing the PA to the Archdeacons: email@example.com
