We are looking for an Assistant Pastor to join our growing church, located 15 miles south of Oxford.

We are looking for someone committed fully to the Lord, with a heart for drawing alongside people to help them grow in their faith.

The successful appointee will:

  • take on oversight of an area of church life (for example Life Groups, outreach, schools engagement)
  • if gifted, preach approximately once a month and support additional teaching opportunities run throughout the year
  • support the pastoral care of church members, in a variety of contexts (including small groups and 1:1)

We would also expect to see the development of new ministries, in line with your particular gifting and passions.

This is a full-time position, with a three month probationary period and annual review.

You will need to be able to declare wholehearted acceptance of the FIEC doctrinal basis and agreement with the FIEC ethos statements.
