Description of Job

St Mary’s is a Spirit-led and Bible based, community engaged church. The congregation covers a wide age range and includes members from different racial and cultural backgrounds, with a predominance of families, particularly young families, reflecting the local population. Within our services there is a respect for liturgical forms of worship, with a sense of freedom and flexibility.
Greenhithe was once a small, rural village but is now a growing urban development situated between Gravesend and Dartford and on the edge of Ebbsfleet Garden City.
We are looking for a person who is Spirit led, prayerful, caring and a team player, and most importantly has a sense of humour! You should be able to work well with people from all walks of life both inside and outside of the church family. We have a strong connection with New Wine and we are looking for someone who will embrace this.
As well as all the ‘normal’ Priestly duties, we would like you to be involved in our Community Café, community events and the Mary’s Child charity, which is run from this church in conjunction with other local churches.
In return we can offer you an enthusiastic ministry team, comprising of 2 Church Wardens, 2 LLM’s, a deputy Church Warden and a Pastoral Assistant, as well as a supportive PCC. There is a welcoming congregation who will encourage you and offer hospitality and friendship. There is also a 5 bedroom house with a large garden which overlooks the Church.
