Job Description
St. Anne’s Parish is a spiritual center of Eucharistic worship and prayer located in the seductive beauty of rural central Virginia yet conveniently close to cosmopolitan Charlottesville, home of the University of Virginia.  The congregation draws from the charming town of Scottsville on the James River, from surrounding villages and farms, and from Charlottesville itself. An inclusive and welcoming parish, we are people who seek to find God and be nourished in a supportive, loving community.

Joining together with a healthy corps of lay leaders, we seek a rector to nurture and challenge us as we move forward boldly into God’s future.  Although currently envisaged as as three-quarter time position, there is strong potential for this to transition to full-time.

Our Sunday worship stands solidly in the Anglican tradition and might be characterized generally as “broad church” in style.  That said, both the informal mid-week Eucharist and our popular monthly Celtic worship often reach beyond traditional prayer book language to broaden and extend our sense of the sacred. Through acts of hospitality, justice, mercy and intentional practices of spiritual formation we desire to grow in a deeper relationship with God through Christ Jesus.  Sustained in the community by worship, we are strengthened for the journey as we seek to embody the love of God for the life of the world.

Our greatest gifts as a parish also present us with very real challenges. Our small congregation allows for a welcome sense of intimacy and mutual care.  We rejoice in the children in our parish, yet, like many churches we long for more families with children and youth.  Uniquely, we are one parish worshipping in three lovely and historic churches, offering the advantage of different liturgical spaces. Yet, we bear the burden of stewardship for these buildings entrusted to our care.
