15% stipend 2 days plus Sunday
We are looking for a part time Incumbent (15% stipend £4,103.25, plus house which equates to 2 days plus Sunday) in the lovely suburban setting of Compstall. Compstall is surrounded by stunning parks yet close to excellent access links to Manchester and beyond.
Whilst the village is a small community the Church draws folk from a wider area and has grown in recent years.
Can you lead the Church as they seek to continue to grow and develop with a multi-generational approach? The Churches mission statement says that they are ‘walking in faith with the community’ and this is a lived reality with excellent connections with the village that helps them achieve their vision to be ‘Christ’s presence in the world’.
The Church is looking for a good listener, full of faith, who will work with an active congregation.
The Church is well resourced including having a multi-generational orchestra on some Sundays and they have carried out extensive repairs to the building in recent years leaving the Church plant in excellent condition. There is also an excellent Church Hall that is extensively used during the week.
Housing is an issue and an early conversation with the Archdeacon would be advised if you’re interested.
Please note: The Diocese of Chester will not interview any candidates for posts if they cannot provide an assurance of a valid DBS and up to date safeguarding training.
The Archdeacon of Macclesfield, The Venerable Ian Bishop is available for a conversation should you wish.
