Interim Chaplain, St Paul’s Cathedral
Our current Chaplain is leaving after three years to take up an appointment in the Diocese of Newcastle. We are in the process of the recruitment for a successor and we expect the new Chaplain will not be able to start until the New Year. We are therefore recruiting for a Fixed Term Interim Chaplin for 6 months.
The Interim Chaplain will cover the whole Chaplain’s role for at least the first three months, then to hand over to the new Chaplain and work with and support them as they begin their new ministry.
The primary focus of the Interim Chaplain’s ministry will be to enable the provision of pastoral care and nurture for the Cathedral Community and our many visitors, who come from across the globe.
We are particularly looking for someone who can learn quickly, be flexible and gracious, and good at enabling others. Knowledge or experience of working in a cathedral and especially at St Paul’s will be an advantage.
The interim priest will bring wisdom and spiritual insight, along with extensive expertise and sensitivity in pastoral care, and will thrive on the challenges presented by ministry in an iconic and dynamic setting.
We encourage people from diverse backgrounds with relevant skills and experience to apply.
