St Anne’s is a welcoming church of historic significance, a Crown living adjacent to the entrance of the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew, a World Heritage Site that forms part of our parish. It has an engaged and committed congregation drawn from across Kew and parts of west London whose worship is firmly based in the eucharistic tradition.

The parish, patron and bishop are prayerfully seeking a priest who has the vision, ambition, energy, and communication skills necessary to work collaboratively with the congregation and across the community and Diocese, and will:

  • be committed to excellence in sacramental worship, music and preaching
  • guide, support, encourage and lead the church community as it develops more adventurous and relevant expressions of faith
  • be eager to support and develop a thriving ministry to children and young people
  • encourage and nurture leadership and gifts amongst the laity
  • bring a strong emphasis to the pastoral aspects of priestly vocation and develop a lay-led pastoral support team
  • promote and deepen positive links with The Queen’s School which has long-standing and strong connections with our church
  • continue and further strengthen our relationships with local churches and schools, the Royal Botanic Gardens and community organisations
  • work to increase St Anne’s outreach and deepen its commitment to Social and Climate Justice and contemporary issues
  • collaborate with the PCC and congregation to develop a strategic long-term Mission Action Plan.
