Advertisement for Incumbent

St. Augustine’s Anglican Church in Lethbridge, Alberta, invites applications for our next Incumbent, to be the spiritual leader of our dynamic, diverse, and forward-thinking parish.

About St. Augustine’s

Situated in downtown Lethbridge, we embrace our motto of being “A Church Family in the Heart of the City”.  As the only Anglican Church in Lethbridge, St. Augustine’s welcomes a population diverse in age and ethnicity.  There are over 400 households on the parish roll, and four services are held weekly to meet their worship needs. We offer many programs, such as Sunday School, Youth groups, Bible studies and Home Groups. Our lively and dedicated staff work collaboratively to do God’s work including an Assistant Priest, a Child and Family Ministry Coordinator, Office Administrator, Vergers, Music Director and Pianist/Organist. An extensive network of parishioner volunteers serves alongside priests and staff members to enhance ministry and programs.

About our Incumbent

Our Incumbent needs to offer spirit-filled, challenging teachings to assist our parishioners on their Christian journeys.  Being a church that employs a variety of liturgical styles and practices, we are seeking a priest who is skilled at liturgical planning and presiding during church services.  St. Augustine’s offers many programs; our Incumbent needs to delegate ministries and support and collaborate with lay members who are working in those ministries.  Strong communication skills and knowledge of current technology will enhance this ministry.  In addition to traditional in-person services, our Incumbent needs to excel at leading live stream services, as these are now being offered on a regular basis and are likely to continue for some time to come. Our Incumbent needs to offer pastoral support to people of all ages and walks of life. St. Augustine’s Incumbent will lead our visioning process, work in the mission field that is outside our doors in downtown Lethbridge, as well as exploring the future use of church properties.  In summary, we are looking for a priest to share our walk with Christ, as a friend and a leader.
