Team Vicar applications close this Sunday

We are currently recruiting our next vicar, who will be Team Vicar in Lordsbridge Team, and lead minister for Caldecote Church, St Mary’s Comberton and The Church in Toft (LEP).  Interested? Read on!

We’ve put together a parish profile to give you an insight into the life of Caldecote Church.  A full recruitment pack, including profiles for Comberton and Toft, is available on the diocesen website vacancies page.

Vacancy information in brief

The rural parish of Caldecote and Childerley encompasses three very different centres of population, with the church building located at the southern tip of the parish. Partly due to the church’s location and its limited facilities, attendance at regular services is small, but we can fill the church to capacity at festival services.

With a quiet enthusiasm and an open-minded willingness, Caldecote Church punches
above its weight: we have recently raised over £20,000 for building improvements; we have an active website and social media presence; and in past months we have begun to articulate and act on a clear vision for our ministry and mission.

We are looking for a vicar who is approachable and genuine in their desire to learn about us and to lead us on our journey forwards, as we seek to grow in our faith and to see our lives as part of God’s mission for all of creation. If you have a sense of the privilege of exercising ministry within the challenges of a rural context, combined with a sense of humour, this may be the place for you!
