Northmoor Team Ministry: Team Vicar

Closing date for applications: 24th August 2018

Interview date: 25th & 26th September 2018

Covering over 150 square miles of beautiful West Devon countryside, the Northmoor Team on Dartmoor’s northern edge is served by a Rector and two Team Vicars, a supportive group of lay and ordained colleagues, and dedicated church communities. The Team Vicar for the five parishes of the Northern Group lives in Hatherleigh, a bustling small market town. There is strong potential for growth spiritually, numerically and in service of others.

The team looks forward to welcoming a priest with a love of rural community life and a call to rural ministry.  He or she will be:

  • someone with strong people skills, keen to be involved locally
  • a relevant, accessible communicator and a good listener
  • at home in both traditional and innovative forms of worship
  • equally skilled in leading from the front and in encouraging the ministry of others
  • able to share a vision for work with children and young families
  • up for a challenge and eager to explore possibilities

For an informal conversation about the post, please email the Ven Douglas Dettmer or tel: (01626) 832064.

The appointment is subject to an enhanced DBS disclosure.
