We’re a Conservative Evangelical parish situated on the Becontree Estate in the London Borough of Barking and Dagenham.

We have an ambitious plan for gospel outreach and growth and so we are looking for a Pastor to lead the church family in gospel mission to our culturally diverse local community and in building a sustainable foundation for the future.

Interim Priest in Charge
Key objectives of the post, which is initially for 3 years, is to work with the PCC, under God, to:
  • Turn our Next 10 Years vision into an action plan and see that plan begin to bear fruit, for example in people becoming and growing as Christians, and more church members playing their part in this mission
  • Improve the financial sustainability of the parish by increasing the giving from the church family and securing new gospel partnerships, sufficient to meet our parish share
The successful candidate will be committed to expository Bible teaching and prayer, to training lay leaders, and to partnership with churches in our local gospel partnership and further afield. Experience in urban or cross-cultural ministry an advantage.
