Is God calling you to lead a new season of the life of the parish of Amersham with Coleshill? Are you:

  • comfortable in the mainstream Anglican tradition
  • able to spot and develop opportunities for mission and evangelism
  • a leader with experience of growing a parish family especially young people and Church schools
  • an inspiring teacher and preacher?

The Bishop of Buckingham and William Tyrwhitt-Drake (Patron) are seeking a Rector for the Benefice of Amersham with Coleshill set within the Chilterns Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.  As our new priest leads us forward in worship, mission and outreach, he or she will be supported by the churchwardens of the two churches, two non-stipendiary associate rectors, one experienced Licensed Lay Minister, three authorised preachers, a part-time paid administrator and a talented and enthusiastic PCC. Our churches are at the heart of our communities and home to a welcoming and prayerful church family. Although we have a rich history, our focus today is on the huge opportunities the future holds for mission and growth.

For further details on how to apply are included the Parish Profile. If you’d like to enquire more, have questions or would like an informal conversation, please email Bishop Alan or email  via his PA,
