A Vacancy at St Mary’s

The St Mary’s church community in South Ealing is seeking a new Vicar following the move of our previous Vicar of more than 25 years to a new Benefice.

The PCC has prepared a Parish Profile in support of the advertisement for a new Vicar. This has been informed by a process of the PCC listening to God through the congregation with:

  • responses to a survey made available at services and sent to everyone on the email distribution list (which received 60 replies); and
  • two focus meetings (which included people who did not respond to the survey) with the Sunday morning focus involving the children and young people.

The Vacancy will be advertised for the first time in The Church Times on Friday 5 July 2024. The advertisement and the documents for potential candidates to consider are available on the church website.

  • Closing date for applications 9th August at 5pm
  • Parish visit 23rd September
  • Interviews 24th September

A Prayer for St Mary’s during our Vacancy

Heavenly Father,
We thank you that your love is unchangeable.
During this vacancy, we ask that you guard,
and grow St Mary’s as we serve you together,
in this period without a Vicar.

Lord Jesus,
At this time of uncertainty and change help us to know:
You have plans for us and that these plans are good.
We ask now that you will help us to share responsibility,
grow in faith, love one another, care for those in need,
reach out to others, and welcome newcomers.

Holy Spirit,
Please guide those who are seeking the right person for us,
(PCC, Bishop Lusa, Archdeacon Catherine, Area Dean David Neno)
and those who are seeking the right place for their ministry,
that together we may discover your way for the future
and see your kingdom grow.
Through Jesus Christ our Lord.
