Rector of Stanton by Dale with Dale Abbey and Risley

We are one church in three locations, sharing in the same evangelical convictions. Coming from a wide variety of church backgrounds, we believe that the Bible is the revealed word of God and make it central to our Church life.

We seek someone who:

  • has a passion for evangelism, is a capable expository preacher and who will lead us into the practical application of the word of God.
  • has a commitment to support and build children’s and youth work in the benefice and continue to develop strong links with our Church of England primary school.
  • is able to provide pastoral care and engage with the village communities.

We offer:

  • a committed leadership team and a paid benefice administrator.
  • prayerful support and encouragement.
  • a variety of church owned buildings.

Our benefice is situated in an attractive rural setting within easy reach of the M1 motorway, Derby, Nottingham, Derbyshire Dales and Peak District.

Informal conversations are very welcome.
