Sun, Sea and Sandy Beaches at Coastal East Devon are awaiting our new TEAM RECTOR. We have good train, bus and road links to Exeter, Bristol and beyond. A good selection of Schools, award winning Fish & Chip shops plus one of the longest sandy beaches in East Devon together with sporting and leisure activities.
Our mission community is comprised of 3 diverse areas, a rural village on the Exe Estuary (Lympstone), an expanding village at the start of the Jurassic Coast (Littleham) and finally the coastal side of Exmouth town.
We’re looking for a Team Rector able to give Holy Spirit led, Bible based teaching within a broad-based church tradition, Eucharistic focus and an appreciation of quality in liturgy and music. We hope for a good communicator, approachable and good listener. Someone who keeps people informed and becomes actively involved in local communities. We expect her or him to have collaborative leadership skills and experience in nurturing teams as well as having IT skills.
We in turn, can offer great lay, clergy, administrative support together with 2 Youth and Family Workers plus a fantastic 5-bedroom Rectory within walking distance of the beach, in the centre of the mission community, with parking and an easily maintained garden.
