Our Vision

Hearts on Fire with a Vision for growth

Vicar, St John the Baptist, Malden

St John the Baptist, Malden is an attractive, suburban parish (population 10,700) within easy reach of central London. The supportive and forward-looking congregation is keen to work with the new incumbent to develop the Church’s life and outreach. It is therefore looking for a priest with strong leadership qualities who will:

  • promote effective, collaborative working
    enable them to grow spiritually and numerically
  • embrace and develop their liberal catholic tradition
  • be fully supportive of their inclusive ethos
  • be enthusiastic about working with children at the church school and in the wider parish
  • help them embrace change and look for innovative ways of
    engaging with the local community.

There is a spacious, refurbished four-bedroom vicarage.
