Priest in Charge – Oswaldbeck Benefice (time limited interim*)

Ministerial Vacancies

Working for us as a member of clergy in one of our rural, urban, or inner city parishes will be as varied and interesting as the people of Nottinghamshire you serve. The diocese is based in the heart of the East Midlands, close to the bustling city of Nottingham, and with easy access to London by train with good transport links up, down and across the country. You can be assured of regular pastoral and spiritual support from our Discipleship and Ministry Team, ensuring that your development needs are met in your Ministerial Development Review, with opportunities for peer support and personal growth.


We are prayerfully seeking a priest, who will lead us in growing disciples in the six villages and nurture the church family. We are looking for a creative leader who will:

  • Grow and develop our team
  • Develop new strategic service patterns
  • Make the most of excellent opportunities, particularly with children and families

We have much to offer including:

  • Versatile and cared-for churches
  • Good relationships with our schools
  • Excellent links with our communities
  • Based in a beautiful part of North Nottinghamshire

Are you:

  • a strategic leader, who will collaborate across the six churches
  • keen to communicate the Gospel and lead worship
  • open to the leading of the Holy Spirit in discerning new and creative patterns of ministry
  • a good listener, who values each person, who will encourage us to grow in faith, help us to develop our gifts, and challenge us
  • passionate about creating healthy Christian communities that enable everyone to use their gifts
  • able to support us as we work more closely together as a newly-formed Benefice?

If so, we would love to hear from you.

*This post is an interim Priest-in-charge post offered under section 29 (1) (j) and (7D) of the Ecclesiastical Offices (Terms of service) Regulations 2009 as amended. As a result, before the end of the first three years there would be a review involving the postholder, PCC and diocese to assess progress against the priorities outlined in the person specification section of the profile. This review could lead to a further extension of up to three years. The post could be made permanent after the maximum six-year period.
