About the Role

for the Parish of Nursling with Rownhams
Romsey Deanery

A growing parish (current population 5,400, but expanding fast), not far from the South Coast, is looking for an inspirational and visionary vicar to serve our community and build on our evangelical tradition.

We are looking for someone who will:
- Be able to work across a diversity of worship styles (traditional to modern)
- Enable us to grow spiritually and in numbers, alongside good Bible teaching
- Be enthusiastic about working with children and young people especially in our church primary schools
- Be able to lead us in exploring creative outreach with those who are not used to ‘traditional church’
- Committed to collaboration with other local churches
We offer:
- A recently refurbished four-bedroom vicarage in an area with good schools
- Excellent travel connections; the coast and the New Forest are not far away
- A willing team of staff (including a part time paid Youth and Children’s Minister and Parish Administrator), volunteers and supportive congregations committed to ‘Living the Mission of Jesus’
For an informal conversation contact:
The Ven Dr Peter Rouch, Archdeacon of Bournemouth on 01962 710960

Closing date: 26 April 2019 at 12 noon
