    CPAS and the Diocese of Bristol invite applications for the post of:

    Vicar of Malmesbury & Upper Avon and Lead Incumbent of the North Wilts Mission Area

    We don’t yet know who the next Vicar of Malmesbury and Upper Avon will be… but we are confident that God does.

    We are a group of congregations based in Malmesbury Abbey and three village churches. Over the past decade the Abbey has gained a reputation as a creative and innovative church, truly valuing the best of traditional and contemporary styles of worship and seeking, alongside the village churches, to engage wholeheartedly in the community. Our desire is to build on this and discover and live out God’s purposes for us in the future.

    We are seeking a strategic leader “after God’s own heart” to enable us to fulfil His mission for us in this place, at this time: someone to love us, challenge us and equip us in equal measure. Additionally, as Mission Area Lead Incumbent, you will be key in setting direction and shaping mission in North Wiltshire.

    This is a challenging but exciting role. It will need an exceptional and experienced candidate with the ability to shape and communicate a vision, support and encourage others in their ministries, and grow disciples of all ages.
