Website The Diocese of Nova Scotia & Prince Edward Island

The Church of the Holy Spirit is seeking a part-time minister (1/2 time) to join our church family.  The Church is in the south end of Dartmouth on Regency Drive, just off Gaston Road.  Our building is beautiful, well maintained and located in the hub of a growing community where you will find schools, shopping, pharmacy, hospital, bus service all in close proximity. Our beautiful courtyard is wheelchair accessible and a wonderful area for pictures, an outside meeting or small tea party.

We have parishioners that are on the more experienced side of life. We prefer to use both books (BCP and BAS). Most members of our church have been members for many years. As a result, there is a special sense of fellowship and wonderful friendships that cover generations. Our four Licensed Lay Ministers and six additional readers are willing to assist in any way that they can. We are wheelchair accessible, with accessible washrooms and a middle pew removed for easier access.

As our part-time minister, our parishioners are looking for a team player with strong leadership abilities, who is organized and approachable. They must be able to work with us in the church community and be willing to listen to our needs. We need someone who can lead the congregation forward in ministry with hope, integrity and courage. The ability to have crucial conversations is especially important. They must be willing to provide Pastoral guidance and ministry where needed with home or hospital visitations and attend our Parish Council meeting once a month to provide guidance and leadership. Have the ability to be flexible and open-minded and have a sense of humor. They must be a clear speaker and deliver meaningful, thought-provoking sermons that relate to everyday living.

We look forward to meeting you, if you feel drawn to our Parish.
