Associate Priest of the Rutland Water Benefice

House for Duty + 20% Stipend

We seek a collaborative colleague to join the Ministry Team serving several picturesque villages around this popular reservoir, situated between Peterborough and Leicester. The Associate shares with the Rector in the missional leadership, pastoral care and administration of the benefice, which may focus particularly on four of the villages.

We are praying for a priest who is:

  • longing to bring their skills and experience to a new situation, where they can share in making Christ known

  • willing to value the past and the central churchmanship of the parishes yet able to preach and lead worship imaginatively

  • keen to engage creatively with our schools and with those outside the church

  • able to sustain themselves and thrive in rural ministry
