Team Vicar and Team Missioner, Benefice of North Downs

Team Vicar:

We wish to appoint a Team Vicar for the “Pilgrims Way Ministry Area”. This post covers villages in an area of outstanding natural beauty and a modern suburban community on the edge of Maidstone.

Team Missioner:

In addition to three clergy focused on particular parishes we want to appoint a Missioner (lay or ordained) to work with clergy and laity across the benefice.

North Downs Benefice (near Maidstone, Kent) is a newly formed team ministry drawing together four former benefices.  We are fortunate that we are able to increase our staffing at this point.  With two incumbent status clergy in post we are seeking to recruit two further staff members to join us as we embark on a new venture of working together.

These posts could be held together by a couple.

For an informal conversation about the posts, please contact the Team Rector, Rev Canon John Corbyn.
