Wanted: a new vicar for Christ Church

'Disciples becoming more like Jesus, by the power of the Spirit, for the growth of God's kingdom and the transformation of Selly Park and beyond'

We are seeking a vicar whose life and leadership spring from a deep and strong personal faith in Jesus. Someone with an understanding of contemporary issues who is committed to the gospel, to personal prayer and is led by the Spirit.

We are looking for a person who has:

  • a heart for outreach and mission - helping us discover effective ways of sharing the gospel both inside and outside the church
  • a heart for God's Word - enabling the mature, the less mature, and those who are seeking, to explore the Bible and live out their growing faith in their Monday to Saturday lives
  • a heart for God's Church - leading, enabling, encouraging and empowering women, men, young people and teams, to exercise the ministries that God has given them
  • a heart for people - compassionate, understanding and encouraging, accepting and valuing individuals including our children and young people and those on the fringe

Selly Park is a small parish located in south-west Birmingham. Our building is a modern busy place, fully used most days and evenings. We employ five people on part-time contracts and enjoy the assistance of two retired vicars who are members of our congregation, and of two lay readers. The Vicarage is located 15 minutes' walk away from Christ Church building.
