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.

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.
