About the Role

We are looking for someone to lead both churches, building on our strengths, helping us to grow together in faith, whilst celebrating each church’s individuality.  The Vicar we would like will have energy, enthusiasm and the vision to guide us into the future.

We are looking for a Vicar who will:

  • join us in our belief in a church that includes everyone
  • be comfortable in our liturgical worship, liberal theology, and in our diverse communities
  • welcome and encourage the contribution from young people
  • engage with the elderly and middle-aged members of our community

We can offer you:

  • support from two Assistant Priests, two Readers and two Southwark Pastoral Auxiliaries
  • many active and committed volunteers who are involved in all aspects of church and community life
  • support and encouragement in your personal development and wellbeing

We would welcome someone with experience of growing God’s Kingdom from which we can all learn and benefit.

We use the new Church of England Pathways recruitment process.  Please see https://pathways.churchofengland.org/job/pathways/720/vicar               

For an informal conversation please contact the Area Dean, Revd Simon Foster on 020 8681 3147 or email [email protected]
