Rector: Chew Valley East Benefice

Four parishes located in in the beautiful Chew Valley, close to Bristol and Bath, are praying for a new priest to walk with us as we unite in the hope of growing our churches.

We can offer you:

  • An openness and willingness to engage in the beginning of a new chapter as a newly reconfigured benefice.
  • A part- time administrator.
  • A modern four bedroomed house, with an integral office, in the beautiful village of Chew Magna.
  • Financially sound churches.

We are seeking someone who:

  • Has experienced the varied spiritual needs of people from a wide range of church backgrounds.
  • Will work with us to build on our community links, developing trust so that we can begin to tell our story.
  • Can help us become more creative in our approach to growing our churches.
  • Is experienced in using a range of technology in their ministry.

Together we aim to:

  • Become more active in enabling our churches to become more used by all in our communities.
  • To engage and build on our relationships with our parishioners, responding to people where they are.
  • Dispel the perception that worshipping God only happens in church on Sundays.
  • Explore ways of working together (to share skills and ideas) as a newly reconfigured benefice.
