Vacancy: Full-time Vicar, Parish of Riccarton-Spreydon, Diocese of Christchurch (Closes 28 February 2019)

The parishioners of the Riccarton-Spreydon Parish are seeking a full-time vicar for their suburban, traditional/conservative recognisably Anglican parish, where mixed styles of worship can be experienced – both traditional and contemporary expressions. Riccarton-Spreydon is an energetic, busy, financially secure parish with a missionary orientation, both on overseas mission and continuing local outreach. Being a newly merged parish, they are uniquely poised to grow further.

The parish is looking for someone with demonstrated capability – a forward looking team leader, with strengths in growing the pastoral and spiritual life of a parish, who could flourish knowing they are supported by a capable administrative team, and a well-resourced, faithful parish team. They are open to a husband and wife combination.

A parish profile and an expression of interest form are available by emailing the Executive Assistant at the Diocese of Christchurch: or by phoning 03 348 6701.

Applications, which must include a CV, a response to the profile of not more than four pages, and a statement about your faith and personal approach to ministry, are requested by Thursday 28 February 2019 and are to be sent to
