Associate Vicar, St Andrew and St Mark, Surbiton
We are a growing, inclusive congregation in a cosmopolitan, children-friendly, suburban parish, blessed with two fantastic churches that have recently been renovated.
To grow further, we are now looking for an Associate Vicar to enhance our ministry team, sharing fully in the life of the parish and with primary responsibility for ministry of young people, from babies to young adults.
We are looking for someone who:
- works well with others, able to inspire and lead volunteers
- is a priest of grounded faith, able to lead services in the catholic tradition as well as more informally
- engages creatively and effectively
with children and young people
- is experienced in using social media in a church context.
While we have the post fully funded for a full-time priest for up to five years, we will actively consider applications from people looking to work flexibly or part-time. The post offers full stipend with pension (incumbent level) and either accommodation or an accommodation allowance, according to the preference of the candidate.
