We are seeking a Team Vicar to work with the Team Rector and a HfD Team Vicar across The Claydons and Swan Team of eight parishes, and to take pastoral responsibility for The Claydons parish.
In the years ahead, we want to focus on growing our congregations, our giving and our faith, our community and on facing the opportunities and challenges of the future.

The parish of The Claydons offers exciting opportunities and interesting challenges for whoever is appointed to this post. While the setting of the parish and the wider team is distinctively rural, there are areas of new housing and more to come with the plans for development over the next 10 years across the whole team as part of the Oxford-Cambridge arc. This will bring many opportunities for mission into the new developments at the same time as bringing significant disruption to the local communities while the infrastructure is under construction.
