Edgemoor Mission Community Team Rector

Closing date for applications: 6th March 2023

Interview date: 29 March 2023

On the edge of the amazing Exmoor National Park, and within easy reach of the stunning coast and beaches of North Devon, this is a wonderful place to live and work.  We have rain, snow and a lot of sun: but all weathers bring God’s gifts for a new Team Rector.

We seek an energetic leader, perhaps a first incumbent, to join our in-post, part-time vicar, for overall oversight of the Edgemoor Group, but with direct responsibilities for six parishes.

You will:

  • understand the joys and challenges of life in a large, rural Benefice;
  • relish being part of our communities, building relationships with people of all backgrounds, understandings and spiritualities;
  • adopt an innovative and original approach, focussing on growing the church in our communities;
  • lead our ten Parishes, encouraging unity and cooperation;
  • be a real team player, supporting lay-leaders and delegating responsibilities to build a strong, united Ministry-team;
  • help us develop worship to meet the needs of our Parishes and seize opportunities for new growth.

We are:

A team of loyal, supportive and highly collaborative PCCs, congregations and ministry-team, who will help shoulder the admin burden, and who want to work with you to develop our churches.
