This two-parish benefice, embracing both rural and urban communities in South Somerset, is situated in a pleasant location with good road and rail links. We long to reach out with the love of God more widely into our communities and to see God’s kingdom grow.
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.
There are two churches in the parish: St Agatha’s is a Grade 1 listed, nationally known beacon of the Catholic tradition in the Church of England and St Barnabas is in the heart of the residential area. The largely gathered, welcoming, faithful, and active congregation reflects the rich ethnic and social diversity of the City. Under the House of Bishops’ Declaration, the parish receives pastoral and sacramental care from the Bishop of Ebbsfleet.
