Rector-designate: Modbury Mission Community, South Hams

Closing date for applications: 2nd May 2017

Interview date: 15th & 16th May 2017


The Mission Community includes the ancient market town of Modbury and the rural and coastal parishes of Aveton Gifford, Bigbury, Kingston and Ringmore, all in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. With a wide range of community activities, spectacular coastline and beaches, and the South West coastal path in the parishes, it is a wonderful place to live and work.

The church communities are in good heart with a strong desire to work together as they continue to grow in prayer and reach out to the people of their parishes in mission and service.

They are praying for a priest who is:

  • keen to grasp the mission potential of a multi-parish benefice
  • passionate about the Gospel and its relevance to people’s lives
  • skilled in encouraging and developing the gifts of lay people
  • nourished by both traditional and innovative styles of worship
