Vacancy: Vicar, Parish of Cashmere, Diocese of Christchurch (Closes 24 February 2020)

Is God calling you to St Augustine’s to partner with us in our faith journey to worship and serve our Lord Jesus? 

Cashmere is situated on the north side of the Port Hills and rises above the southern end of Christchurch.

St Augustine’s is an evangelical parish, having at its heart mission at local and overseas levels and a variety of worship styles. Central to the life of the parish is a strong pastoral ministry. Home groups play an important role in parish life, providing discipleship, exploration of faith and pastoral support. We place high value on strong Bible-based teaching. Our new vicar will need clarity of vision and much energy.

  • We look for a vicar with a heart for pastoral care and the ability and experience to minister to all ages
  • We look for a Christ-centred preacher and teacher: one who will navigate a range of views with sensitivity and respect. A person who both challenges and encourages us to move forward.
  • We look for competence and skill to lead a diverse group of people, re-build lay leadership and improve our diminished financial resources.

We look to re-build and grow the parish.
