Full Stipend with flexible housing or allowance option
St Margaret’s, Renfrew and St John’s Johnstone have been linked for the last 20 years. We have an exciting opportunity for a priest to join and lead two unique, loyal and committed congregations with established support for incoming clergy. Both churches are focused on spiritual growth in depth and numbers and building sustainable Christian communities and centres of worship.
Notably, St Margaret’s have recently concluded significant investment in the church building, including a new roof. St John’s have initiated a programme of work that will see improvement to the church building. This post provides an opportunity for someone to build on each congregation’s achievements of the last decade and bring their own thoughts and ideas to how we collectively grow and strengthen the congregations and our worship over the coming years.

Experience of working with a congregation as well as the wider community
