We are looking to appoint a motivated, energetic and forward looking vicar who can lead the parish on its spiritual journey, strengthening its liturgical traditions and building its established outward looking catholic mission.
Our hope is for a vicar to engage with the parish, grow the congregation, nurture young families and the youth of the parish, engage with the local school and partner with other churches in bringing everyone to the love of Christ. In return, the vicar will find a willing, hardworking and supportive congregation and supportive clergy colleagues.
The Bishop of Ebbsfleet writes:
St Paul's Wyemouth have three great assets: a genuine sense of invitation and warmth of hospitality; a deeply rooted sacramental life; and a willing and collaborative attitude with other parishes in the deanery and beyond, which gives ample attitude with the other parishes in the deanery and beyond, which gives ample opportunity for 'mutual flourishing'.
We need, therefore, a confident and motivating priest, rooted in Catholic tradition, who understands that the Church is 'mission-shaped' because it is 'sacrament-shaped': that the sacraments shape and inform the mission strategy of growing and nourishing the Body of Christ.
We are praying for a colleauge who be able to energize and equip the whole worshipping community in their liturgical offering, their discipleship and their mission.
I hope you will be encouraged to apply and continue to discern if God is calling you to serve at St Paul's.
