Team Rector of Saffron Walden and Villages Team Ministry and Area Dean of Saffron Walden Deanery

Location: Saffron Walden CB10 1JP

We are looking for a confident and compassionate priest, who feels God is calling them to work with our strong ministry team and to nurture our friendly congregations, who long to share God’s love in the wider community.

Your primary pastoral focus will be St Mary’s, Saffron Walden, a majestic church with a regular worshipping congregation of over 200, rising to around 800 at major services.

We would love it if you have a heart for the rural ministry of our town and villages: ready to listen to and engage with the people you meet and to work inclusively and consultatively to help us arrive at a shared vision for the future.

Eleven village churches complete the team which, together with the wider deanery, is centred on Saffron Walden, a thriving market town in northwest Essex.

Please read our updated Team Profile to find out more about this challenging and varied ministry.

We encourage you to contact Robin King, Archdeacon of Stansted for an informal conversation about the post and to request an application form - Email 

Closing date for applications:  27th September 2020
