Incumbent West Purbeck Benefice

by Lyn Booth last modified 17 May, 2021 11:19 AM

The West Purbeck Benefice has been formed in the last few years by bringing together three separate benefices and reflects a commitment to collaborative ministry, lay and ordained across several villages in a beautiful part of Dorset. Following the unexpected death of the incumbent we now seek a new Vicar to lead us into the next stage of our growth and development in a creative way.

 If you are:

  • an approachable, inspirational leader, who is expectant of, and can manage change ― in our benefice, but also in us,
  • a person of God-given vision who will love people, work collaboratively with necessary skills of listening, tact, kindness, empathy, and a sense of humour,
  • comfortable leading many different styles worship, 
  • an outward-looking person, keen to be involved in the community, who will enjoy building relationships, and increasing the ‘missionary fringe’,

we hope you would consider coming to join us. 

In turn we can offer our enthusiasm, our willingness to collaborate as a supportive team, part-time administrative support and an attractive four bedroomed vicarage in Wool.
