Trinity College Cambridge and the Bishop of Ely seek to appoint a


for the Parish of St Mary & St Michael, Trumpington

At first glance St Mary and St Michael’s Trumpington looks like a typical traditional village church. Yet this misses the seismic changes taking place in our community. Cambridge’s ‘Southern Fringe’ is midway through a period of radical growth. Extensive housing and new schools have been built since 2012, bringing diversity of every kind: class; country of origin; language; education; demographic; belief.
St Mary and St Michael’s is a growing church and is rising to these challenges. We seek a Vicar to help us to serve this exciting place now and to discern where God might be leading us next.
He or she will be a person of deep, open, attractive faith who lives this out in prayer, word and action.
He or she must have the energy, vision and gifts to:

  • inspire us to a deep, transformative faith expressed in lives of worship and service
  • inhabit the breadth of Christian theology and worship embodied in our services
  • empower our whole church community to hear God’s call to ministry and mission
  • value an incarnational ministry that engages widely with the life of the whole parish
  • work alongside a full-time Outreach Worker and volunteers to build on our thriving work with children, families and schools
  • oversee a planned project to improve facilities in the church building
