Job Description
Our Mission
Christ Church Clermont- Ferrand is an English-speaking congregation that seeks to reach out to our community to spread the good news of Christ Jesus throughout Auvergne. Our fellowship professes faith in Christ through worship, fellowship, education, stewardship and outreach. We welcome people of all backgrounds, nationalities and denominations at any stage of their journey of faith. Christ Church is a parish of the Convocation of the Episcopal Churches in Europe.We feel God’s calling to strengthen the signs of growth we have recently seen. We see scope for expanding the number of resident members of the congregation, our services to groups such as college students residing in the area, and to welcome those who may not be aware of our presence. We believe that our community will benefit from a priest-in-charge who either speaks or is willing to learn French, and who is welcoming and inclusive. We value a good preacher and teacher who is able to lead a congregation which is partly transient, and to minister to a wide variety of people of faith and perspectives.

After prayerful reflection and significant input from the members of our congregation via survey, we pray that the Lord may help us to find a priest-in- charge with the following characteristics:
• A welcoming-heart that continues to cultivate a warm and accepting community to all who attend our church.
• An open mind that is focused on including and listening to our cross- cultural and interdenominational families.
• A voice that preaches the liturgy to a wide variety of people including children.
• A willingness to include a variety of music and prayer to our services.
• A willingness to learn French because many of our members speak French at work and school, but English at home.
• Part-Time Priest-in-Charge that perhaps has supplemental income
