Port Talbot is a coastal town with a strong industrial heritage and a population approaching 40,000.
We are looking for an open-hearted and collaborative vicar to lead us as we start our journey as a united benefice in this lovely corner of rural Essex. You would be living in the historic small town of Coggeshall, with a flock spread across several surrounding villages.
The Bishop of Buckingham and St Leonards Church Trust seek to appoint a vicar for the joint Benefices of The Lee and the Chiltern Hilltop parishes of St Leonards, Cholesbury and Hawridge.
We are a group of three parishes set on the banks of the River Severn and the edge of the Forest of Dean, and close to the city of Gloucester.
We are keen to appoint a priest with a heart for urban ministry in this richly diverse context of the West Midlands. This exciting new position has been created by the merging of 2 parishes to produce the Parish of West Bromwich All Saints with St Mary Magdalene and St Philip. The Resident Minister will lead the two churches of St Mary Magdalene and St Philip’s on a 0.5 + 0.5 basis and collaborate with the Vicar/PCC in the mission of the 3 churches to the benefice.
