Team Rector of the Hitchin and St Paul’s Walden with Preston Team, with special responsibility for St Mary’s, Hitchin.

We are looking for:

· Someone who is equally at home leading a large civic service or sitting on a bean bag telling the story of Jesus to a 4 year old

· An individual with an outward and inward enthusiasm for God

· An experienced priest with a proven record of good collaborative team leadership

Some of the things we can offer:

· Intelligent, engaged, enquiring congregations and a welcoming local community

· A large, supportive and diverse team, including five ordained and seven lay ministers, keen to work more closely together

· A spacious and homely vicarage, within a vibrant and cultural town.

This exciting post combines the challenge of overseeing a team of seven churches, including a BMO, with leading St Mary’s, the civic church of Hitchin.
