Vicar of Derby St Alkmund

We are an evangelical, charismatic, multigenerational church seeking a Vicar who will help us lead the ministry for a changing church.  God is inspiring us to begin to reimagine mission in the centre of Derby - a high quality of living city at the heart of Peaks and Dales and with a rich industrial heritage.

We are committed to growing spiritually, determined to reach out widely - spreading God’s love and mercy to those around us, motivated to build upon our relationships with local churches and excited to explore mission in a calling from God as part of a Minster Model within the Deanery.

We seek an experienced vicar who is:

  • a leader and team player who works collaboratively with others
  • a pastoral person, with a passion to get alongside and develop others
  • a preacher and teacher with effective communication skills
  • a person with a missional heart for the least, the lost and the lonely

We offer:

  • supportive, prayerful and active congregation
  • enthusiastic staff including administrative support
  • established ministries reaching out to our community
