Associate Vicar (half-post), Benefice of West Monkton with Kingston St Mary, Broomfield and Cheddon Fitzpaine

Our benefice stretches from the edge of Taunton into the Quantock Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

We celebrate the 4 festivals of the agricultural year; we seek to meet the challenge and opportunity of the current development of 1000 houses in Monkton Heathfield, including the building of a new primary school. We enjoy good relationships with our 3 church primary schools, village halls, parish councils and community groups.

We are praying for an Associate Vicar:

  • with a collaborative, team-playing style
  • who will delight in our communities, young and old, traditional and new
  • who has a confidence in the gifts and talents that God has given her or him and the desire to see all God’s people flourish
  • who will enjoy sharing the love of God with the families who come to our churches for 70-80 occasional offices each year

The five bedroom vicarage is in the middle of the village of Kingston St Mary. It is three miles from Taunton with its excellent schools, mainline railway station and the M5.
