Priest-in-Charge of the Benefice of St Peter & Christ Church with Holy Trinity, Derby

A city centre church worshipping Jesus and responding to human need.

St Peter’s is located prominently on Derby’s main pedestrianised shopping street, across from the Derbion Shopping Centre. The excellent and flexible church building and connected centre are used extensively to serve the needs of the city. St Peter’s is home to a committed and energised worshipping community committed to the city centre ministry of St Peter’s.

We are seeking a Priest-in-Charge with the experience to grow the congregation at St Peter’s, as confident disciples of Jesus Christ, equipped to respond missionally to a fast-changing university city, its growing cultural aspirations and new city centre residential communities. You will need to be both an innovative and strategic leader and a generous hearted pastor.

You will be well supported by the committed lay and clergy colleagues at St Peter’s, the recently appointed Area and Assistant Area Dean, and the excellent and growing relationships with neighbouring churches of both Anglican and other Christian denominations. The Diocese of Derby is committed to your ministerial development, support, and well-being.

For enquiries or to have an informal conversation, contact: The Venerable Matthew Trick, Archdeacon of Derby City and South Derbyshire matthew.trick@derby.anglican.org.
