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.

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.

WANTED –  RECTOR WITH VISION  |  PARISH OF MIDLAND

The City of Midland straddles the main highway leading into Perth from the East, and is a strongly developing area. 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 here because they truly value the sense of inclusion, community and mission.

The Church of the Ascension, established 120 years ago, is seeking to meet the challenges of expansion. Sunday worship focuses on the Parish Church, and Gidgegannup Community Church which is a joint Anglican-UCA venture. An effective weekly emergency food relief program is run from the church, supported by other Deanery parishes.

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