Brave enough for a rural challenge? Lover of BCP? Steam enthusiast? Seeking the riches of village life?
What more could you want?!
A charming Sussex village, despite its quasi-ribbon development – 3 miles long and 50yds wide, with an exquisite 14th C church set out in the fields, an inviting pub named ‘The Laughing Fish’ and the Lavender Line steam railway, friendly natives and keen and supportive church community – all these attractions are on offer to the right priest, who will relish Gospel preaching and pastoral ministry, will have a heart for mission and a willingness to be drawn into the fullness of community life.
This could be the post for YOU!

Chanctonbury Churches Intern: from September 2015 (full time)
We are looking for an intern for a period of between 6 and 12 months, to work closely with our Senior Youth Worker, as well as having the opportunity to experience and contribute to other areas of our church life.
Ideally you will be a school leaver or postgraduate female, to enable a female role model to complement the leadership of our Youth ministry. Two thirds of your time will be involved in the Youth ministry, and one third on other church activities with opportunities to explore and develop your Spiritual gifts.
This should be a great opportunity for someone to gain valuable experience of church ministry, particularly among young people. In addition to learning “on the job”, we will provide a full programme of mentoring and specific training to the intern during their time with us.
This is a volunteer role, and so does not come with a salary. However, we will pay travel and subsistence expenses, as well as a £50 per week allowance. Ideally we would like the intern to live within the Ashington area, for which we will provide accommodation and most meals. Alternatively we will cover travel expenses to and from your home.
