The Scottish Episcopal Church
Diocese of St Andrews, Dunkeld and Dunblane
St. James the Great, Dollar
We seek a new Rector who has a strong sense of spirituality, leadership and creativity; someone who will help the congregation on their own faith journeys and will reach out to others in the area who are looking for their spiritual home. We expect the new Rector to be inspiring, prayerful, theologically stimulating, and in touch with contemporary church debates whilst still respecting more traditional approaches.
St. James the Great is a single charge incumbency in the popular, centrally located town of Dollar, Clackmannanshire and includes a well maintained and spacious Rectory which stands in its own walled garden.
The Bishop also intends that the Rector of St James will have a role in the oversight and encouragement of St John’s Episcopal Church in the neighbouring town of Alloa, and of the part-time priest-in-charge who will be appointed there. This is not a Linked Charge, but an informal partnership being established by the Bishop and both Vestries.
Congregational profile, Rector profile and application form are available on the St James the Great website or by application to the Vestry Secretary firstname.lastname@example.org.
Closing date for applications: 18 January 2019
Remuneration: Scottish Episcopal Church Clergy Standard Stipend. A full-time position with appointment subject to a satisfactory enhanced Disclosure Scotland check (Protection of Vulnerable Groups (Scotland) Act 2017).
We look forward to receiving your application.
