Would you like to join our large and gifted ministry team?

Are you energised by pastoral ministry and committed to the sacramental life?

If so, we are seeking a joyful priest to share our life in Christ. A key focus would be Hailey and Holy Trinity churches, but the benefice consists of five churches, six nursing/care homes and eleven schools around our beautiful market town and villages on the edge of the Cotswolds AONB (

We are praying for a priest who will:

  • Have pastoral oversight for Holy Trinity and Hailey Churches, leading mission & renewal
  • Oversee and develop pastoral care and encourage others to share in this across the benefice
  • Have a deep commitment to the Eucharistic life and the Daily Office, whilst embracing a wide range of missional opportunities
  • Share with the ministry team in drawing new members into our inclusive church community, nurturing those in our care with grace and compassion.

What we can offer:

  • A large group of active church leaders, lay and ordained, committed to working in highly collaborative ways
  • A place where food, fellowship and fun are cherished
  • An excellent vicarage with four bedrooms, two ensuite, and good schools nearby
