Holy Trinity is Eucharistically-centred, embraces diversity and seeks to work with others to bring hope, kindness and friendship to all, not least those on the edge.

With a Church school, University, local hospitals nearby, a large regeneration project about to start and an ecumenical partnership, there are great and exciting opportunities to grasp for God’s mission in this richly diverse parish.

The Bishop of Southwark is seeking a gifted, outward-looking priest to lead a new chapter in the life of this significant parish.

A priest is sought who :

  • Has a lively faith, a deep spirituality, a love for people and transformative kindness.
  • Has the leadership and passion to cast vision, build teams and develop partnerships.
  • Is able to engage effectively with different age-groups, cultures and spiritualities.
  • Will embrace the congregation and work with them to pioneer new approaches to, and initiatives in, mission, worship and discipleship.
  • Will prayerfully preach, preside and lead, enabling the church to continue to thrive and grow, rooted in Christ’s welcome for all.

Holy Trinity is looking for a Vicar who wants to serve Christ with us in bringing real
transformation to an area which has pockets of high urban deprivation within a socially very diverse population and who would relish the challenge of regrowing a church.

We are looking for a committed, open and deeply spiritual person with the ability to take both a practical and strategic approach to the challenges facing us and a pastoral, caring approach
to current members of the congregation and wider parish. Our recent survey identified
excellent preaching, relating well to everyone, commitment to mission and outreach, pastoral sensitivity, leadership and energy as our top priorities. To this we would add being able to lead us into wider vision for the area, working with our Deanery, local and ecumenical partners as we reach out to our neighbourhood with the love of God.

Holy Trinity Roehampton is a traditional, friendly, inclusive church grounded in an open,
generous theology and a good sense of fellowship. As a diverse mix of people, we warmly
welcome all, irrespective of age, ethnic, social or religious background, family or relationship
context.
