There has been a keen interest in response to an advertisement in the Church Press publicising an innovative form of ministry to be introduced in the Diocese in Europe.
We will be seeking “Interim” or “Transitional” Ministers for special roles in carefully selected chaplaincies. Experienced priests who are looking for a challenge are being sought to encourage and equip churches in transition who would benefit from experienced leadership.
These Priests would be employed in churches who have enjoyed a long incumbency or are in a lengthy interregnum, when a chaplaincy is facing serious difficulties, conflict or underperformance or when a need for a change of direction has been identified. They will be short-term appointments lasting about 1-2 years and they may be part-time or full time.
There will be a five-day residential training course from Monday, 11th to Friday 15th September at St Columba’s House, Woking, Surrey. The costs of the training will be met by the Diocese but participants will be responsible for their own travel expenses.
PLEASE NOTE - APPLICATIONS FOR THIS SCHEME ARE NOW CLOSED
