Do you have a passion for Mission and a pastoral heart?
Would you like to join a collaborative and creative team?

The Plympton Team Ministry is at an exciting stage in its development with a lot of potential. We are seeking to appoint a stipendiary priest as Team Vicar who will work alongside the Team Rector across the whole of Plympton. There is a strong commitment to collaborative ministry.

We are looking for a priest who is…
• Outward focused
• Prayerful and Eucharistic
• Pastoral & relational
• An effective leader, a colleague and team player
• An inspiring teacher and preacher
• Appreciates the breadth of worship across the team
• Who is willing to develop a fresh expression of church

The Plympton Team Ministry was formed in April 2016 bringing together the ancient parishes of Plympton St. Mary and Plympton St. Maurice.
The population of the Plympton Team Ministry is around 35,000, which represents approximately 14% of the total population of the city of Plymouth. Plympton continues to grow as a result of small housing developments and infill building. A further 550 homes are planned at Coypool on the site of an old china clay works. There is a committed team of lay people who work collaboratively.
