Team Vicar in the Heavitree Team Ministry
14th Jun 2017
The parish of Heavitree with St Mary Steps, Exeter, is looking to appoint a Team Vicar, modern but traditional Catholic for the St Paul's Area of Exeter. The area includes the post Second World War Burnthouse Estate which has a population of about 4,000. It is a lively estate with 2 schools, a children's centre, a health centre and a community centre as well as a pub and some shops.
The post requires energy and commitment, and a careful pastoral ministry, but there is great potential to reach out and serve.
Bishop Jonathan writes:
In my time as Bishop of Ebbsfleet I have come to know the clergy and laity of the Heavitree Team Ministry well and know it to be a healthy and positive team. This opportunity therefore, to serve as Team Vicar, is a very attractive one. The different parts of the team are varied and cover a busy and attractive part of Exeter. At a time when many clergy, including traditional catholic clergy, live with relatively little priestly fellowship in their work, this team under Fr Robin’s guidance is both joyful and purposeful in its work. But work it is; and the parishes are committed to reaching out throughout the Heavitree area with a developing sense of Mission. I hope this profile catches your imagination and encourages you to apply discern with us whether God is calling you to join us in this ministry.
