Priest-in-Charge of the Benefice of Ambergate and Heage

This is a 3 year fixed term, part-time (3 days plus Sunday), stipendiary (0.5) role

We are looking for an experienced and imaginative pastor and teacher who will come alongside our existing congregations offering additional capacity, expertise, inspiration, leadership, and guidance to build our confidence and further the mission and pastoral presence within our villages. Over the coming three years we hope to strengthen our lay ministry teams and reach out to our communities thereby growing in number. Alongside this we will be exploring together sustainable models and shapes of ministry for the parishes and in the surrounding area of Belper as questions of pastoral reorganisation are considered and decided.

You will find an eclectic and friendly mix of people and supportive PCCs who are looking for someone to nurture and encourage us and build on the work that is already happening.

You will need to be pastorally gifted, a confident teacher and nurturer and a skilled co-ordinator and be excited by the opportunity to think across boundaries and imagine new potential, possibilities and partnerships.

We offer you a desirable home within the welcoming and growing community of Belper.
