Team Rector Vacancy

We seek an able, experienced and collaborative priest to lead the Oakham Team Ministry, serving the county town of Rutland and nine surrounding villages. The team comprises two Team Vicars (one in post, one to be appointed, who have pastoral responsibility for the villages), two curates and nine licensed lay minsters, supported by a number of retired clergy. Rutland is the smallest of England’s counties, served by a single Anglican Deanery, and as Vicar of All Saints, Oakham (USA 206) the Team Rector has the opportunity to play a significant role in the life of both the church and the wider community. Oakham is surrounded by attractive countryside and within easy reach of the cities of Peterborough, Leicester and Nottingham, and there are excellent schools.

We are looking for:

  • An inspiring and engaging preacher, able to grow the church and encourage others in discipleship and missional engagement
  • A person of vision and discernment, capable of being a good training incumbent, bringing out the best in a large and diverse team and nurturing new vocations
  • A priest comfortable with a breadth of churchmanship and worship styles, who is willing to develop that diversity
  • A compassionate pastor, sensitive to the needs of others and attentive to their own spiritual wellbeing
  • An effective leader of ministry amongst people of all ages, particularly the young and the old, in both a growing town and smaller villages
