Incumbency Opportunity: Parishes of Harbour Breton and Hermitage

The Rt. Reverend John Watton is inviting applications for the incumbency of a shared ministry between the Parishes of Harbour Breton and the Parish of Hermitage.

Both parishes have been sharing in visioning processes as outlined through the Diocesan “Policy on Sustainable and Intentionally Missional Ministry”, and have made a forward-thinking decision to share the cost of supporting a full-time ministry and housing. At the present, both parishes will be maintaining their individual identities.

The successful incumbent will serve as the rector of both parishes, and will be expected to encourage and develop lay ministries. The incumbent will also lead both parishes in discussions and decision making about the future of ministry on the South Coast.  Pastoral connections such as visitation at homes and institutions is important.

The Church on our South Coast has been, and remains, strongly devoted to supporting Churches in each community. Clergy are loved and respected, and expectations are clear from the people. The work here requires some travel by boat.

The South Coast is well known for hospitality, generosity and warmth.

All amenities one would desire in relation to families, health care, shopping, education and recreation are available.
