January 21, 2020

Rector for St Augustine’s, Dumbarton
United Diocese of Glasgow and Galloway
Scottish Episcopal Church

A full-time position
Remuneration: Scottish Episcopal Church Clergy Standard Stipend

St Augustine’s is known and respected throughout Dumbarton for its outreach to those in need, affectionately called ‘The Church That Cares’. We now seek a rector who, whilst building on this, will also make it known for its Christ-focused spiritual presence in our High Street.

Dumbarton is about 15 miles west of Glasgow, with easy access both to that city and the surrounding countryside including Loch Lomond and The Trossachs National Park and the Firth of Clyde. St Augustine’s Church, built in 1873 and restored in 2003, is a Category A listed building providing beauty and tranquillity in the middle of the town – a hidden gem. The rectory is a modern 4-bedroom detached house, about 0.5 miles from the church.

Please note that our website is undergoing reconstruction. We can be found on Facebook.

The appointment is subject to a satisfactory PVG Scheme Record Disclosure (Protection of Vulnerable Groups (Scotland) Act 2007).
