PRIEST IN CHARGE ANDASSOCIATE VICAR/MISSION ENABLER Ashwick, Oakhill and Binegar Shepton Mallet with Doulting and Cranmore
This is a full time post formed in partnership with the Benefice of Ashwick, Oakhill and Binegar (AOB) and the Benefice of Shepton Mallet, Doulting and Cranmore in Somerset. The person appointed will have parochial responsibility for AOB as Priest in Charge (50%) and live there and be an Associate Vicar in Shepton Mallet, Doulting and Cranmore (50%).
We offer: • A new and exciting opportunity to work across these two benefices • Enormous possibilities for mission and ministry • An opportunity to work with an experienced colleague, to pioneer exciting new models of ministry across the Shepton Local Ministry Group (LMG) • A demographically diverse community in which to work • A commitment to seeing lay ministry grow and develop
There are plenty of courses out there that impart head knowledge but we think we learn best by meeting people who are doing mission, by hanging out with their communities, hearing their stories and then thinking about what we can learn for our own contexts. Throw in some diverse contexts, some great food and inspiring other people on the weekends and you've got a great mix! That's what Resource is all about. You can dive into one weekend or do all four in a year to get a much broader experience.

Newspaper has started something called College Street, a strain of the paper
that releases monthly emails for the 16-25 year old kind of mark! See below for
an example. It is completely free and subscribers will just receive the one
email a month from us, though the website is updated weekly with various polls
and ‘College Street Loves’ posts - http://religiousintelligence.org/churchnewspaper/?cat=2098.
In September this year, Bible
charity SGMLifewords launched Journey
Out Of Darkness, a manga-style comic telling the story of Jesus’ birth in
the Bible’s own words. SGMLifewords invited schools and youth
workers to order as many as they needed to help them share the Christmas story
with young people across the country, and many have responded.

Alongside the many outdoor adventures Rock UK provides for thousands of young people, the charity has
taken on a new challenge to help Operation Christmas Child deliver their 100 millionth gift-filled shoebox this year.
