Team Rector of Northampton Emmanuel

A church within which the Father-heart of God may be known, the love of Jesus may be discovered and the power of the Holy Spirit may be experienced as people grow to maturity in Christ

We are a group of three churches on the eastern side of Northampton. The original church, Emmanuel, was built and opened in 1974, and forms part of the Weston Favell Shopping Centre. In the mid 1990’s, two church plants were created within the parish, one at Boothville and the other at Rectory Farm. The Emmanuel Group is made up of Anglicans, Methodists and Baptists members. However, we now see ourselves working as an ecumenical church with people of all Christian traditions. We have a ministry team of lay and ordained ministers. In the parish there are 13 schools and 14 housing estates. It is the most populated parish in the diocese.

We are looking for someone with an open evangelical approach who would be enthused by working in an ecumenical setting, and within a church with a wide variety of theological and cultural backgrounds.  You would be working in areas of high social deprivation, areas of above average affluence, and everything in between. It is envisaged that, from a strong biblical and faith base, you will be able to lead, teach and encourage all who come into contact with the Emmanuel Group of Churches, in their journey of faith.

Could this be you?
