Priest-in-Charge in the Winkleigh group of churches

Closing date for applications: 26th April 2018

Interview date: May 9th and 10th 2018


Our Mission Community comprises four well-established parishes in the middle of rural Devon. We are looking for a Priest-in-Charge (and potentially incumbent, following a possible reorganisation), who will have pastoral responsibility for Winkleigh, Ashreigney, Broadwoodkelly and Brushford and work in collaboration with the incumbent of the adjacent benefice centred on Dolton.

Our Priest will need:

  • a gift for supporting people within their parishes, and for encouraging them to develop their individual talents to the benefit of their churches
  • an outgoing personality and a desire to mix with everybody in the community, churchgoing or not.
  • an ability to preach, teach and argue about the Gospel.

In return we offer:

  • all our care and support, and a commitment to help confirm all four Churches as the centres of their respective communities.
