Associate Rector | St George's Church

St George’s Stamford is looking to appoint an Associate Rector to support our development as a Resource Church in Lincoln Diocese. The purpose of this new initiative funded by money from the Strategic Development Fund is to renew the urban church in the larger urban centres of Lincoln Diocese where under 1% of the local population attend an Anglican church.

St George’s has been acting as an informal resource church over many years and has a record of pioneering new initiatives in the Stamford area. We have a usual Sunday attendance of around 500 people and our purpose is ‘making disciples on mission with Jesus.’

If you are interested, please read our profile and if you would like to talk it through, please contact Martyn Taylor at rector@stgeorgeschurch.net

The new Associate Rector will release the Rector to oversee the strategic development of church planting teams from St George’s, by sharing in the oversight of St George’s, looking after parish responsibilities and sharing our vision ‘to make disciples on mission with Jesus.’

St George's Church
The Bishop of Lincoln has recently designated St George’s Stamford as an official resource church, alongside St Swithin’s Lincoln and Lincoln Cathedral. The purpose of this new initiative funded by money from the Strategic Development Fund is to revitalise the life of the church in the larger urban centres of Lincolnshire where under 1% of the local population attend an Anglican church. St George’s has been acting as an informal resource church over many years and has a record of pioneering new initiatives in the Stamford area. We have a usual Sunday attendance of around 500 people and our mission is ‘making disciples on mission with Jesus.’ We run regular Alpha courses and have good connections with New Wine. www.stgeorgeschurch.net. In recent years, we have completed two building projects which have given us greater capacity to serve the town and reach more people for Christ. We currently have 15 people (full and part time) on our staff team.
