    Thank you for your interest in our profile. We hope and pray that it will help you to feel prepared and ready to share with us in our journey as we work to enlarge and reach wider within our Christian communities.

    The Benefice of Ross-on-Wye with Walford and Brampton Abbotts consists of three parishes of some 14,000 people in the market town of Ross-on-Wye and two neighbouring villages in South Herefordshire. We are ‘middle of the road’ Anglicans, with a commitment to inclusivity. We are seeking a new Rector ready to take up the challenge of sharing in our vision to reach people of all age groups and backgrounds, strongly supported by (and supporting) our con-gregations, our Local Ministry Development Group and our staff team, which includes an Intergenerational Missioner appointed in January 2018 for a 5 year term.

    If you are looking for an easy ride in a nice market town, then this not the post for you! The Benefice is looking for someone with energy and vision to work with the existing congregation, lay leaders and Intergenerational missioner to shape a church that is outward looking, spiritually deep, warmly welcoming and socially active. If you think that God is calling you to use your talents here, then please read on and reflect on the parish profile, the potential developments and the hopes of the church members for this place over the next few years.
