Vacancy: Priest-in-Charge, St John the Evangelist, Pittenweem & St Michael’s and All Angels, Elie

January 18, 2024

St John’s the Evangelist, Pittenweem and St Michael’s and All Angels, Elie are situated in the East Neuk which stretches along the picturesque southern coast of north east Fife.

We are seeking a Priest to spearhead the vision we have for our churches. We desire to be a strong Episcopalian presence in the East Neuk, living the Gospel as we build on what we are already doing while exploring new initiatives to enhance our worship and service to the wider community. Previous incumbents have been part time, but now we sense is the time for us to invest in a full-time Priest who is energetic, creative and motivated to make things happen.

The post is initially for five years, at the end of which time a review will take place to assess the progress made.

Accommodation is provided in the Great House, Pittenweem, a 17th C. A listed building.

Appointment subject to PVG Safeguarding Record Disclosure (Protection of Vulnerable Groups (Scotland) Act 2007).

Informal enquiries can be made to the Dean, the Very Revd Graham Taylor, at
