Our Vision

A people with hearts on fire, loving God, walking with Jesus and led by the Spirit

Team Rector, St Mary, Putney

The Parish of Putney is looking for strong leadership skills, superb pastoral ability and great sermons.

The Parish of Putney is a lively, thriving community beside the River Thames in South West London. Its two busy churches, St Mary's and All Saints', are in the liberal catholic tradition.

We are looking for a Team Rector who will...

  • Be a well organised, effective communicator and able to stimulate with intelligent, thought-provoking sermons.
  • Recognise people’s talents and encourage involvement, discipleship and lay ministry.
  • Maintain and develop our liberal catholic tradition and possess good pastoral skills.
  • Be forward thinking and willing to embrace new ways of working, including social media.
  • Ensure that our churches are spiritual homes for ALL in the parish.
  • Work closely with Putney's two highly successful church primary schools.
  • Be politically aware. We value our history which includes the Putney Debates and the formation of the Inclusive Church.
  • Promote our Christian mission within and beyond the Parish of Putney.

The church is open seven days a week and has its own busy cafe. There is an excellent vicarage near Putney High Street.
