St Aldates has a well-established ministry to Postgraduates at both Oxford University and Oxford Brookes and you will be responsible for teaching, discipling and encouraging this group and enabling them to play a full role in the life of the church.
The Postgraduate community encompasses domestic and international students studying at the highest level for short Masters courses as well as longer-term DPhils and PhDs. You will be well-equipped to understand and deal with the particular pressures and stresses experienced by this highly-talented and precious group, many of who have the potential to be future world leaders.
Applications are welcomed from experienced lay or ordained candidates and we would look to adapt the role and hours around the successful candidate.
St Aldates Oxford
St Aldates is a charismatic evangelical Anglican church situated in the heart of Oxford on a site where there has been a worshipping community for almost a thousand years. Our first priority is to connect upwards with God through worship, prayer and the Word, which together provide the foundation for all that goes on. We seek to embrace our heritage and also to be culturally relevant – embracing new developments that enable us to communicate the unchanging gospel of Jesus Christ in fresh and relevant ways.
We seek to be "A House of Prayer for All Nations" and our Sunday services are characterised by vibrant, contemporary worship. We have a congregation of 1,000 over three services each Sundays and are currently reaching almost 2,000 online.
We have well-established ministries serving students, families, internationals, the elderly and the marginalised in our city.
