Vicar (Interim Basis), St Oswald's, Tile Hill

26th Oct 2018

We are seeking a Society priest, or a priest who is willing to sign up to The Society for the parish of Tile Hill in the Coventry Diocese - a parish with huge potential for community regeneration initiatives.


In particular, the parish seeks a priest who is:

  • able to be a positive presence and work with a wide number of people, churches and organisations to bring about unifying and transformational change in a local community;
  • pastorally skilled with people who can have complex issues and lives, with an ability to be a 'peace-maker';
  • able to develop and deliver excellent Christian faith exploration opportunities and courses, along with helpful ways of developing discipleship and a passionate spirituality for everyday life

The Bishop of Ebbsfleet's Representative writes:


As a parish firmly rooted in the catholic tradition, at the heart of the life of the parish must be the development of the life of prayer and holiness - a devotionallife centred on the Massand the office.


The work of building relationships - within the parish, ecumenically, with other parishes in the Deanery and the Diocese  - will be important, as will be nurturing the parish and developing the social action initiatives already in place.


Above all else, the parish needs a loving pastor who care for, nurture and guide the people of St Oswald's as they seek to grow in love, faith and service and who can translate the Gospel in a way that will help the people of Tile Hill respond in faith.
