Rector & Pioneer Priest (Full-time)
The Benefice of Camel-Allen, Cornwall
Explore the opportunities for mission and ministry in this beautiful coast and country benefice and see for yourself why so many people fall in love with this part of the world!
This is an exciting opportunity for a priest who would like to exercise ministry in a diverse yet realistic cluster of three parishes, combining elements of a traditional incumbency role with a clear commitment to pioneer new initiatives.
The appointment is to a full-time position and we seek a priest with a pioneering spirit, a willingness to embrace a variety of church traditions and a team player with the gifts and graces to exercise oversight ministry by investing in local leaders (lay and ordained) to ensure the flourishing of each parish.
The post combines (in a 50/50 split) elements of a Rector’s role with that of a Pioneer Minister, including:
• Working specifically within Camelford and Delabole to understand the spiritual needs, expectations and opportunities within these local communities;
• Fostering good relationships with relevant community leaders and organisations, including supporting local schools and listening to those within the deep rural parts of our benefice;
• Developing and growing the team of volunteers, identifying and harnessing the gifts God has given.
