Lord, we need a Vicar

We are currently advertising for a new Vicar.

For an informal conversation contact: Justin Frankfort, Lay Chair PCC – 07970 017245

The advert is below however we would urge you to browse this website and read more about our community. The pages include details of occassional offices, finances and more.

Market Drayton is a growing and lively market town in a predominantly rural area in the North-East corner of Shropshire.

This is a single Church and parish appointment, where the parish share is funded in full every year.

We are in a good position to grow and wish to do so rather than remain ‘comfortable’ and are therefore praying for someone who is:
 
An Open Evangelical; able to engage in a range of worship styles from Book of Common Prayer, via Common Worship to informal, rejoicing in the living Word.

Outward looking; building on established outreach of a foodbank, CAP debt centre and other projects, eager for the church to be even more active and visible in our community.

Energetic; actively engaging with all ages of people, where they are, and communicating effectively, both as a missioner and pastor.

A leader; capable of assessing the position and direction of St Mary’s and, in the light of that understanding, working with our team and partners to ensure that we all travel on the path that God is asking us to follow; who is keen to develop and cultivate emerging ministries.

A pilgrim; who will walk with faithful, generous, joyful, prayerful, loving disciples that are eager to learn more about what being the living hands and feet of Jesus means today.
