These two, mainly rural, parishes on the north western edge of Taunton, Somerset’s county town, are now seeing significant new housing development and the Benefice is seeking a new Rector to reach out to new and existing communities.
We seek to grow in spirituality and community, and are committed to growing our faith through study, prayer groups and encouraging lay leaders. We are looking for a Rector who will work with us to develop outreach projects aimed at the new members of our community as well the missing age groups in our Church family; and to strengthen links with our two outstanding Church primary schools.
We offer committed volunteer support, a Benefice office, a five-bedroom Rectory in Staplegrove village and an opportunity to live surrounded by beautiful countryside. Could you lead us into the future, with confidence and courage?
Visits and interviews: 4/5 November
