A SEARCH is underway for a unique opportunity to help the ongoing mission of a village church.

The parish of Caversham, Thameside and Mapledurham is looking for a new associate minister to join the team. They would have a special role in overseeing St Margaret’s Church in Mapledurham, a Grade 1 listed building just outside Caversham. The church is described as a pilgrim community seeking to grow by engaging with others and the role of associate minister would help the parish work towards its mission action plan of having inclusive, generous and life-giving churches. To help St Margaret’s, which has a regular worshipping congregation of around 25, the parish is looking for a self-supporting minister to help shape the future direction of the church and play an active part within the parish. The Revd Dan Tyndall, rector of the parish and its stipdendiary, is excited at the prospect of the new appointment. “The parish is a fascinating mix of people and cultures, hopes and expectations,” he said.“Within this mix we are working hard to enhance the mission of God across Caversham and Mapledurham.

“We’re looking for someone to join a collaborative, inclusive ministry team designed to help us thrive in ministry and lead a welcoming and sympathetic church ready to embrace the future.”
