United Benefice of Great Torrington

Interim Priest-in-Charge

(3 year post)

The United Benefice of Great Torrington offers an exciting opportunity to a new incumbent to extend their ministerial and pastoral expertise in this beautiful area of North Devon.   The rural setting of the 3 parishes of the benefice (Great Torrington, Frithelstock and Little Torrington with Taddiport), the fascinating history of the churches and the generosity and welcoming nature of the population provide a unique backdrop in which to serve God and His people.

We are looking for an energetic and committed individual, who will respect both the Anglo-Catholic traditions of St. Michael’s Great Torrington which has a Resolution in place, as well as the Anglican traditions of St Mary and St Gregory, Frithelstock and of St Giles, Little Torrington.

The opportunities for mission, to enlarge congregations, and to fully become part of these communities, working with young people in our church primary school and senior academy and visiting older people in local residential homes, are extensive.
