POSITION VACANT  |  Priest - PARISH OF ROCKINGHAM-SAFETY BAY

Further information and expressions of interest please contact:

Bishop Kate Wilmot  |  kwilmot@perth.anglican.org  |  9425 7200

Do you have a heart to serve Jesus and love His people? A passion for growing a church by making disciples who are disciple makers - teaching the Bible and equipping others to do so? A commitment to encouraging men and women of all ages to be innovative, Kingdom-minded leaders equipped to serve Christ in the church and in the world? The ability to encourage both disciples and seekers of Christ?

We are looking for someone who can encourage and enable growth in current ministries and explore and drive new ministries in our community. We have been well taught and loved by gospel-focused ministers and long to see that kind of ministry continue in our church. We are seeking a pastor and teacher who will serve Christ among us.

Each Sunday we look for biblical, engaging and practical sermons, thankful praise and prayer to God, and are prepared to participate as our gifts fit the situation.  Our congregation is older - many retirees with a handful of younger families.  There is enormous potential for growth with almost 18% of the community identifying as Anglicans, but not attending Church.

Our church worship centre - St Nicholas is in the city centre of Rockingham, a delightful beachside suburb.  Community profile data is available at https://profile.id.com.au/rockinhgham

To be considered for this position, you will have a positive and proactive approach, having demonstrated strong pastoral wisdom and experience in discipling and equipping others. You will have proven leadership gifts with experience in building teams and growing ministry.  You will be known as a humble leader, pastorally warm, faithful to the gospel and resilient. You have been ordained as an Anglican priest.

POSITION VACANT  |  Priest - PARISH OF MT HAWTHORN-OSBORNE PARK

Further information and expressions of interest please contact:

Bishop Kate Wilmot  |  kwilmot@perth.anglican.org  |  9425 7200

The Parish of Mt Hawthorn-Osborne Park is seeking ordained leadership.

The parish operates under the terms of a covenant of co-operation between the Uniting Church in Australia (Presbytery of Western Australia) and the Anglican Church of Australia (Diocese of Perth).

The congregation seeks a suitably ordained person (Parish Priest, Minister of the Word) to lead the parish in the next stage of its life and mission.

St Peter and Emmaus Church has a modern worship area and meeting space that is well suited to diverse forms of worship and attractive for various forms of ministry to the community.

The congregation pursues links with Wanslea Early Learning and Development Centre which is located on land adjacent to and owned by the church.

Demographically, compared with the greater metropolitan area, the St Peter and Emmaus ministry area has a higher ratio of Generation Y residents (20-35 year olds). There is also a higher proportion of professional people and a higher category of children 1-4 years old.

As a result of a whole-parish consultation held in November 2018, the congregation identified that in addition to being a prayerful, compassionate, discerning person, committed to and able to preach the Gospel, the next ordained leader would demonstrate the following specific qualities:

  • A capacity to enable discipleship
  • An ability to work with a range of theologies
  • Be missional and local community focused
  • Be able to show creativity and “thinking outside the box”
  • Be energetic and capable of leading decision making
  • Be a team player

Additionally, the ordained leader would work well with the nuances and possibilities presented by a co-operative ministry comprising Anglican and Uniting Church traditions.

POSITION VACANT  |  PARISH OF BALGA-MIRRABOOKA - Seeking Priest

Further information and expressions of interest please contact:

Bishop Jeremy James tssf  |  jjames@perth.anglican.org  |  9425 7200

Are you a priest looking for a challenge within a welcoming and diverse church congregation? Then the Anglican Parish of Balga-Mirrabooka is seeking someone like you to lead, serve and guide us as we seek to grow the Church’s mission in our parish.

The position is currently available on a part-time (0.5 - 0.75 by negotiation) basis with an expectation that it will grow to a full time position in the future. The parish has its worship centre on the grounds of John Septimus Roe Anglican Community School in Mirrabooka and includes a beautiful worship space complete with extremely good pipe organ and occasional choir.

The suburbs of Mirrabooka, Balga, Nollamara, Girrawheen, Koondoola, Marangaroo, Ballajura, Alexander Heights, Landsdale and Darch fall within the parish boundaries. The parish currently provides three weekly services on a Sunday: an 8am Eucharist service; a 9.30am sung Eucharist; and an 11am Sudanese service.  Services are also provided mid-week to two aged care facilities within the parish.

The rector is supported within the Sudanese congregation by a 0.5 time priest.

The parish is looking to grow its presence within the community and work closely with JSRACS. It has a dedicated team of people who help with services and the administration of the Church.

The position comes with a high quality rectory in Marangaroo.  Is God calling you to grow the ministry in this unique parish?

WANTED - PRIEST WITH ENERGY AND VISION  |  PARISH OF MIDLAND

The City of Midland straddles the main highway leading into Perth from the East, and is a strongly developing area. Originally the centre for the Midland Railway Company and Midland Brick, with a high proportion of state housing, the area is currently experiencing a surge in new suburbs, which is expected to bring in 7,000 new dwellings, along with a developing medical school, and a new St John of God Hospital. Together with Fremantle and Joondalup, Midland is a regional centre within Perth, and the Parish of Midland has strategic importance within the Diocese of Perth.

Are you a nurturing priest looking for a welcoming, eclectic and active church congregation to lead? Then the Anglican Parish of Midland is seeking someone like you to serve full-time, to guide a church that encourages all to become more Christ-like. Most parishioners live outside parish boundaries but choose to worship there because they truly value the sense of inclusion, community and mission.

The Church of the Ascension, established 120 years ago, is seeking to meet these changes. Sunday worship focuses on the Parish Church, with two out-centres, St Thomas’ High Wycombe, and Gidgegannup Community Church, a joint Anglican-UCA venture. An effective weekly emergency relief program is run from the church hall, supported by other Deanery parishes.

There is scope for development of the facilities. There is a pattern of lay participation and leadership, and with strong and creative clergy leadership the parish has significant potential for innovation and growth.
