Interim Minister for the Trent United Group and Seales Benefice

We are nine parishes in South Derbyshire and East Staffordshire seeking an Interim Minister (to be appointed for 2 years) to provide leadership and imagination as we seek God’s vision for our future.

 We are looking for someone who will lead and inspire us to grow in numbers and personal faith, and will:

  • Work collaboratively with us to identify mission priorities and provide support as these start to be developed.
  • Provide leadership and pastoral support, particularly for lay leaders and clergy colleagues.
  • Enhance our links with all local schools (including the four church schools), and existing work with children and young people.
  • Develop a sustainable pattern of worship, in collaboration with us and colleagues.
  • Identify how the future shape of the benefice(s) can best enable mission and ministry.
  • Explore how this shape can be best overseen, including through the creation of joint PCCs.
  • Identify and start to develop opportunities for making better missional use of our buildings.

We will:

  • Provide supportive colleagues within the parishes, deanery and diocese
  • Provide an attractive 4 bedroomed house within the parishes.
