Vicar (Benefice of South with New Hinksey, Oxford)
We are seeking to appoint a priest of The Society for this half-time role who is:
The Bishop of Ebbsfleet writes:
Oxford is famous for its ecclesiastical as well as its wide social diversity. Situated in the city’s southern outskirts, the parish is unique among its churches as a committedly traditional Anglo-Catholic parish. But its commitments are far from narrow. “We believe in God’s love and generosity to all his people through Jesus”, says the parish’s mission statement, “and as his people in this place we hold out our hands in welcome.” Therefore we are seeking a confident priest, rooted in Catholic tradition, (and probably already affiliated to The Society) to minister in the parish, who can deepen the communal life, and widen the service and outreach of the two congregations, and who will enable it to play a visible part in the mission of the Deanery and See city overall.
• an understanding of the sacraments as primary missionary tools for church growth in number and in spiritual gifts;
• a generous inclusivity, so as to engage effectively with a range of opinions and background;
• an ability to think theologically and communicate effectively;
• a warmth of character and a high value for relationships;
• a disciplined life that gives proper time to work, prayer and rest.
