POSITION VACANT  |  Priest - Parish of Swanbourne-MtClaremont

THE CHURCH OF THE RESURRECTION, SWANBOURNE is seeking a parish priest at 0.5 stipend.

We are an Anglo-Catholic parish whose worship and teaching follows a contemporary rather than traditionalist ritualist approach. We value preaching that regards the Scriptures as generally a faithful witness to God while having respect for critical scholarship, and which seeks to understand the challenges of being a Christian in a post-Christian society. The focus of our worship of God-in-Christ is the Mass, where we seek to be thankful for the real presence of Christ in this holy sacrament.

Our Mass takes place in a modern, award-winning church, which provides a light-filled space in which many parishioners experience the beauty of God. There is one Sunday Mass at 9am. Each month there are three Sung Masses involving the choir and the congregation, and one Choral Mass with the setting sung only by the choir. The choir is a semi-professional group of young singers whose ministry is highly valued by us.

We are a middle-aged to elderly community of Anglicans mature in the faith, with a welcoming community life frequently commented upon by visitors, which also involves concerts and parish dinners. We have a concern to connect with the community around us as a church and, until lack of staff required us to withdraw, we had an active pastoral and sacramental ministry to various community homes in the parish.

Please contact: Bishop Jeremy James; jjames@perth.anglican.org

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.

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 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?
