Full-time, seven-year termed appointment, Minister’s stipend  

General Assembly wishes to appoint a United Reformed Church minister to serve as Thames North Synod Moderator following the retirement of the Revd Dr Andrew Prasad.

The start date is to be confirmed but will be between March and June 2021.

The synod has been through a period of change as it seeks to support churches in their mission to their local communities in the 21st Century and new ways of working have been implemented. The management of change will, however, be an important aspect of the role.

The new Moderator will be a person of deep spirituality with the ability to inspire others and will be able to demonstrate:

  • a sound track record in ministry;
  • pastoral gifts and a readiness to explore new ways of being church;
  • experience of collaborative team working;
  • an ability to delegate;
  • provable ability to exercise consultative leadership and help churches to manage change; and
  • a commitment to building relationships ecumenically and with other faith groups.
