Hearts on Fire with a Vision for growth

Vicar, St Mark, Battersea Rise

Applications are invited for the post of Vicar of St Mark’s, Battersea Rise in the Diocese of Southwark, and one of the first church plants from Holy Trinity, Brompton.

St Mark’s is a large, lively, evangelical, charismatic church (500+ adults, 200+ youth and children), a short walk from Clapham Junction. 

Core ministry includes:

· an in-depth teaching and pastoral ministry to our church congregation;

· a series of strong partnerships with global mission organisations.

St Mark’s is ready to embark on a new, significant chapter of our life, led by a Vicar who is full of faith, secure in themselves and in their convictions, and with the ability and appetite:

· to lead in mission, locally and globally, with fresh insight

· to develop with vision its growing community ministries – bridges between the church and the local area

· to extend outreach through church planting

· to utilise the regenerated old schoolhouse to expand reach into the community

· to face the challenges of secularism and scepticism in inner-city London
