Vicar of the Parish of St. Andrew's, Buckland and Monachorum with the Church of the Holy Spirit Milton Combe, Devon

We are a thriving evangelical church where fundamental to our belief is the authority of the Bible as the inspired word of God alongside an honouring of the person, fruit and gifts of the Holy Spirit.

Our semi-rural parish is set in a beautiful location on the edge of Dartmoor, not far from the coast, within a local community of about 2,500 people. There are two churches about a mile apart, with the smaller of the two having a more traditional pattern of worship. The congregations comprise around 160 worshippers in total, with services in both churches every Sunday with a wide age range, but with a strong youth focus.

We have close links to the Church of England Primary School in the village, with a committed Christian majority on the governing body, and where the head teacher and teaching staff are also committed Christians.

We have a strong church leadership team of lay ministers, an assistant curate, a recently appointed full time youth worker, and two experienced church wardens, as well as many volunteers who help with the numerous activities within the life of the church.
There is a comfortable vicarage with beautiful views, and a large garden which would provide a suitable family home for the new Vicar.

We are looking for a new leader, who whilst being servant hearted, passionately believes the Bible to be the inspired word of God, and who has the prayerful vision to move both churches forward according to the Lord's will. This is an exciting opportunity. We are prayerful that God will lead the right person to be with us here.

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
