St Mary's Church, Shirehampton


St Mary's Church is at the heart of the community of Shirehampton, an urban village on the western edge of the city of Bristol.

Our vision is that St. Mary's will be active, accessible and attractive as Church for everyone. 

St Mary's is looking for a Priest in Charge who will:

  • Be a collaborative and consultative leader
  • Be active in the faith development and pastoral care of our church family and its extensive 'fringe'
  • Be a leading, active and visible presence in the local community
  • Be encouraging of lay involvement and responsibility in worship
  • Support, maintain and lead existing mainstream liturgical robed services
  • Lead further development of the Tithe Barn facility as a bridge between church and community
