Remuneration: Scottish Episcopal Church Clergy Standard Stipend

Hills. Rivers. Sheep. Fishing. The beautiful Scottish Borders has plenty of material for metaphors! It also has distinct but neighbouring Episcopal Church congregations in Galashiels and Selkirk determined to sustain a Eucharistic form of worship in their towns and to express God’s love to their communities.

Do you have previous leadership experience of working collaboratively with people to achieve positive change? Then might you be the priest God is already preparing and equipping to work with our lay leadership teams to inspire, nurture and grow these congregations in worship and outreach? Let’s test that
calling together.

We offer newly built, energy efficient accommodation. Edinburgh city centre is 55 minutes away by train.
