The Bishop of Leicester is seeking to recruit a full time Associate Vicar/Rector to four of our Resourcing Churches. These key appointments form part of the underlying strategy to enable the Resourcing Churches to embrace their church planting aims, alongside the on-going support and growth of each Resourcing Church. If you enjoy working collaboratively, affirming lay ministries, preparing congregations to plant, are interested in strategic development and are comfortable with leading change we would like to meet you.
The Ebbsfleet ‘Lay Congress’ in March 2016 saw over 400 lay people from different Ebbsfleet dioceses coming to Coventry Cathedral to hear an outline of 8 ‘Essential Qualities’ (8EQs) which enable churches to be healthy and flourish. These qualities are based on international research of over 80,000 churches by Natural Church Development (NCD). Encouraged by positive feedback from the Congress, and experience of the qualities in practice within churches in the Diocese of Coventry, the Bishop of Ebbsfleet has requested assistance from the Diocese of Coventry in developing this approach wider. Funding from the Church Commissioners has been secured to assist in this contribution to mutual flourishing. This new and exciting post has been created to assist in developing these qualities in parishes served by the See of Ebbsfleet.
The Diocese of Salisbury is seeking an exceptional person to provide strategic and executive leadership as the Diocesan Secretary and the Chief Executive of the Diocesan Board of Finance.
