Denstone College is seeking to appoint a Chaplain (full or part-time) for September 2019 or as soon as possible thereafter.
The successful candidate would enhance the worshipping life and outreach of a community accustomed to a high standard of traditional music. But we have a wide spectrum of worship needs so the director would also be willing to explore informal/contemporary music styles.
We are a benefice of two thriving and growing villages in Somerset, with two listed churches. We are on the edge of the Mendip Hills and within easy reach of Weston- super- Mare, Bristol and Wells.
Our Benefice is just west of Stafford and the four churches cover several rural villages. Farming is the main local activity but there are also significant numbers of commuters who work in the surrounding towns and cities. All our churches are within a 3 mile radius from the rectory, which is in Haughton, the largest village.
