Exhall St Giles is a fairly sprawling parish situated on the northern edge of the city of Coventry. The parish covers suburban Exhall, parts of the town of Bedworth, and Ash Green, and also contains an area of rural lands. The church itself is located in Exhall; it is not in the centre of an obvious community or in a location that people would normally walk past. The church is situated one mile from junction 3 of the M6 motorway, providing excellent access both to other local communities and to the national road network.

There are no other Christian churches of any denomination that sit within the parish boundaries. Exhall has a post office and a number of small shops and pubs, mainly located on Black Bank/Coventry Road Exhall, with some local shops on the nearby "Cedars" estate.

Closing date for applications: 12 noon Friday 18th January 2019

Interviews: To be held on Monday 11th and Tuesday 12th February 2019
