Canon Missioner, St. James Cathedral

Website The Cathedral Church of St. James

Serving as a partner in the Cathedral’s Ministry Leadership Team, the Canon Missioner has a unique role. S/he will lead on evangelism and discipleship, lay ministry and pastoral care. S/he will help us build relationships with our neighbours, and become a hub for the arts. S/he will share in the leadership of the Cathedral at a time when momentum is building and the community is growing.

The person appointed will be an experienced ordained Anglican priest (6 years minimum), a team player, a natural teacher and a strong preacher. Forming disciples of Jesus Christ and enabling lay ministry will come naturally, and s/he will have a track record which attests to their effectiveness in these areas. The person appointed will demonstrate humility and joy in the exercise of ordained leadership in a diverse, complex urban setting, and will minister comfortably within a theological context of generous orthodoxy. S/he will have strong organizational gifts, able to exercise initiative and to lead and manage others, to thrive in a team setting where responsibility is held collectively.

We seek to build a clergy team that reflects the diversity of God’s Church. At the time of appointment we will be without a woman priest in the stipendiary clergy team. So while we will review all applications on their merits, we particularly welcome applications from qualified women.

We offer a competitive package which includes stipend, housing at the Cathedral Centre, pension and education allowance.
