CONNECT | GROW | INFLUENCE
 

We are a vibrant, growing, ‘Word and Spirit’ family of all ages and personalities, part of the ‘New Wine’ network; with a clear sense of vision and direction and a robust, united and healthy leadership and staff team, complimented by an amazing number of committed volunteers.
 
We’re seeking a senior colleague to join us as we pursue the calling God has laid upon us to be part of a movement which sees Bristol become a City of Hope and our world transformed. Our need is for an Associate Vicar, who will share leadership with the Vicar and other senior colleagues..
 
We are open to applications from men and women at any stage of ministry – from someone who has satisfactorily completed (or will soon complete) a curacy and is looking for significantly more responsibility; to someone who may currently be an overall leader of a church, or churches, and who is now looking for a role within a team where they can focus on their own specific gifts.

More details of the role are available here.  Details of our church vision are available here.

Further details, application packs, forms and guidance notes can be found on the Diocese of Bristol website.
