Rector of St. Paul’s, Hasland and Vicar of St. James’, Temple Normanton

St. Paul’s and St. James’ have a long history of Anglo-Catholic worship and are looking to appoint a priest of the Society of St. Wilfred and St. Hilda for these two thriving parishes, which are under the patronage of the Bishop of Ebbsfleet.

The parishes are situated just south of the busy market town of Chesterfield and on the edge of the beautiful Peak District National Park. The rectory is situated adjoining St. Paul’s church and is a modern four bedroomed house.

Our ideal candidate will have a good understanding of sacramental theology and Anglo-Catholic liturgy, an ability to lead the church in mission, an ability to stimulate and challenge, a strong pastoral instinct and excellent communication skills.

We are looking for a priest who will:-

  • continue to develop relationships between the parishes and local schools and help us to grow our work with young people
  • lead an existing team of lay people
  • be a visible presence within the communities of the parishes, embracing local concerns and identifying partnership opportunities.
