Part time Incumbent, St Mary's, Balderstone

We are an Evangelical Church, Biblical in theology and conservative in style of worship; using a mix of traditional and modern music. We stand in that belief today, not out of tradition, but because it reflects our conviction that obedience to God under the authority of the gospel defines us and is the source of our life in Christ. We hold close the Gospel and all its teachings, keeping the traditional, but positive Biblical view.

We are a committed, loving family of God from a diverse cross section of the local community. We are a town church, situated at a main intersection within Rochdale. We aim to reach out to our local community and witness to the good news of Jesus Christ.

Our prayer is for a leader who....

  • Is a sound Biblical teacher: teaching traditional Biblical views, including that on sex and marriage
  • Is a person of faith and prayer whose life and ministry is rooted in the authority of the Bible
  • Is male as head of the church family
  • Has a heart for evangelism and a passion for mission

He must have the following abilities and experience:

  • Is a good Biblical communicator, leading services which are real, relevant and organised
  • Has the discernment to recognise his own skills and limitations, and is capable of nurturing the skills and gifts of the wider congregation including vocations and team building
  • Has the ability to connect with non churchgoers, both those who come for baptisms, weddings & funerals and in the wider context
  • Has experience and ability to be a training incumbent
  • Is capable of co-operating across parish boundaries where possible or appropriate as good neighbours

For more details please contact Rev Dr Rob Munro
