Priest in Charge (House for Duty) of Cranford, Grafton Underwood, Twywell and Slipton

We seek a priest with energy and vision to inspire and lead the mission of this church in communicating the gospel within Cranford, Grafton Underwood, Twywell and Slipton.

We are looking for someone with:

  • Sensitivity and compassion, committed to pastoral care

  • A sympathy for both tradition and innovation in worship
     
  • The ability to communicate well with people of all ages, particularly the young
     
  • An enthusiasm to engage in all aspects of rural community life, with the capability of managing time and resources to maximum effect
     
  • A willingness to engage with the Kettering Deanery in new patterns of outreach to the East Kettering housing development (which is due to extend eventually into the edge of the parish of Cranford)
