St Anselm's Union Parish - Wellington: Part Time Minister
Following the retirement of their minister in June 2021, St Anselm's Union Church in Karori, Wellington, is seeking a part time minister. The ideal person will, amongst other things;
be inclusive, ecumenical in outlook, and encourage the congregation to explore various styles of worship and interpretations of theology;
bring an awareness of the role of the Christian in today's world; and
continue St Anselm's progress towards a more community focussed ministry.
St Anselm's represents a diverse group of Christians, and the minister may come from any denominational background. The congregation participates actively in complementing the role of the minister.
This is a part time position. However, there is every likelihood of a shared ministry with another parish, thus enabling the appointee to have a full stipend.
The parish is situated in Karori West, close to the local school, Karori Park and Makara (mountain bike trails, scenic walks and beach) and only 15 minutes from Wellington CBD. There are good community amenities including a mall plus a variety of other shops, an excellent library, swimming pool, cafes, restaurants, day care options and a Community/Sports Centre. Zealandia, the world-class nature and wildlife sanctuary, is also located here. More information is available on request.
The church is open to negotiation for mutually suitable terms and conditions of appointment.
