Part-Time Vicar Ellesmere Parish

Part-Time Vicar Ellesmere Parish


The Ellesmere Parish is looking for a Vicar to preach God’s word in our semi‐rural parish. Ellesmere lies within the Selwyn District, the fastest growing district in New Zealand. As a result of this growth the community balance is shifting from mainly farming with small rural support towns, to a mixture of farms, lifestyle blocks and township residents.
The parish is in the challenging position of meeting the needs of the existing congregation, while finding new ways to encourage more families and residents to become active in faith, worship and service. This challenge requires a vicar who can communicate clearly and build cohesive working groups.
A parish profile and an expression of interest form are available by emailing the Executive Assistant at the Diocese of Christchurch: or by phoning 03 348 6701.
Expressions of interest, which must include a CV, a response to the profile of not more than four pages, and a statement about your faith and personal approach to ministry, should be sent to
