HOUSE FOR DUTY

Walpole St Peter with West Walton

Both churches feature in Simon Jenkins Top 100 churches and receive a large number of visitors- they are stunning buildings. The parishes are between Wisbech and Kings Lynn. Kings Lynn has a good rail connection to Ely, Cambridge and London.

However significant the buildings are, that is not all there is to say about them. The existing congregations are middle Anglican in style and both churches have a good congregation, Sunday by Sunday.

One key aspect of these parishes is the excellent relationship with the local primary school. They are looking for a priest who is willing to be Chaplain to the school and to help the congregations grow.

For more information please contact the Archdeacon of Huntingdon and Wisbech, the Ven Hugh McCurdy, 01353 658404.

For an application form contact Mrs Anne Smith, 01353 652719 or archdeacon.cambridge@ely.anglican.org

CAMBRIDGESHIRE ARMY CADET FORCE

Cambridgeshire Army Cadet Force need a second padre. Chaplains need to be ordained or equivalent and of incumbent status and have an affinity with teenagers and a sense of adventure. Male or female, a military background isn’t required but, given that cadets are aged 13-18, there is quite a big requirement for TLC and pastoral care/ homesickness. There is an upper age limit of 65.

Padres are required to accompany the cadets on their 10 day summer camp, acting as the welfare team. Summer camp means a training camp somewhere, from which the cadets go out in various groups into the training area to practise fieldcraft, onto the ranges, participate in watersports, go on battlefield tours or whatever. The padre can be assured of a bed within the camp.
