Vicar of St Peter Loudwater

This job has now expired
Loudwater, High Wycombe
Clergy

We are a friendly, vibrant, evangelical church located close to High Wycombe and the Chilterns. On a Sunday around 180 people of all ages worship God in varying styles. We have active involvement with our local community, but we see greater opportunity and potential to purposefully reach out and serve those around us, so together we are engaged in extending God’s kingdom and building a church without walls.

Loudwater has many of the facilities of a self-contained village, including: a few local shops; post office; several pubs; a school; doctors’ surgery; golf course; rugby club and cemetery. There is a boys’ club as well as scout and guide groups with whom the church has links. There are also Tesco, Dunelm, and Homebase stores, that serve the wider area. It is 3 miles away from High Wycombe.

As we prayerfully considered the vicar we seek, inevitably our list was long. But above all our concern is to find a vicar whose discipleship and dependence on the Holy Spirit and prayer is transparent in their personal life and public ministry. We desire a well-grounded, orthodox, Bible-based teacher and preacher, an evangelical who has a passion for sharing the Good News of Jesus; and who is unafraid to confront the values of contemporary society with a radically different and relevant agenda, based on God’s word.

We are looking for a vicar whose discipleship and dependence on the Holy Spirit and prayer is transparent in their personal life and public ministry. We desire a well-grounded, orthodox, Bible-based teacher and preacher whose leadership aims to:

  • follow the model of Jesus Christ who came to serve;
  • help us discern together God’s direction for our future, delivering a strategic plan rooted in that vision;
  • be a leader of leaders, as well as an accomplished manager and team builder;
  • model a culture of pastoral care in our church and community;
  • relate to children, young people and families;
  • be a vicar to Loudwater as well as a leader for our church family at St Peter’s.
