Christ Church is politically neutral, and is a congregation of diverse views, all of which are respected.

Duties will include:

Sharing in leading worship, preaching and the administration of the sacraments with the rector and associate rector;

Sharing in the pastoral care of the congregation; and

Sharing in planning, organization and visioning for the staff team and the parish
