Rector wanted for the united benefice of Crediton, Sandford with Upton Hellions and Shobrooke

Closing date for applications: 6th June 2018

Interview date: 3rd July 2018


Do you desire to see God’s people grow in faith, hope and love? Would you like to live in the heart of Mid Devon and minister where Devon’s first cathedral was founded? If the answer to these questions is ‘yes’, then the church communities of our three parishes would really like to talk to you.

We want someone who:
— will help us to innovate and change so we can grow;
— is able to encourage, support and guide us to spread God’s word, particularly among children and families;
— can work with a large congregation and with smaller, rural churches;
— will develop learning and fellowship across the benefice.

We offer:
— supportive church communities, willing to explore ways to move forward;
— 0.5 (FTE) Priest at Sandford, Curate-in-Training, active retired clergy, three Readers and a parish administrator in Crediton;
— one of the best church choirs in Devon;
— a modern rectory in a vibrant market town, just a few miles from Exeter.

We will appoint the best person for the job regardless of gender.
