This position has been filled.
New Hope Anglican Church in Watertown, Connecticut, is seeking a new rector.
New Hope Anglican Church is a vibrant and obedient body of believers worshiping in Watertown Connecticut. We are members of the Anglican Church in North America and located in the Anglican Diocese in New England under the leadership of The Right Reverend William Murdoch.
Although we are a young church, a large portion of our current congregation left The Episcopal Church to launch New Hope in 2008. So we carry with us a 256-year legacy of faithful expression in Watertown of the Anglican approach to Christianity.
Now we have entered into a time of discernment as a church seeking our third Rector. This time of discernment has opened our spiritual eyes as a parish and has become crucial in understanding what God will have for us.
Our short-term objective is to continue in this time of discernment and study. The Vestry, Discovery Team and parish are united in the understanding and committed to the knowledge that God is working something new from the remnant of one the oldest parishes in the country.
Our long-term objective is to be molded by the Father into the church He desires us to be. We are eager to explore new and old types of ministries that would help to grow our church and bring the people of our community into a relationship with the living Jesus.
Vision of Our Next Rector
It is our prayer that the next rector of New Hope Anglican Church be:
- A born-again, Spirit-filled individual, a person of prayer, who will be able to preach with clarity and make the Gospel applicable.
- A pastor with the ability to care for people, nurture them and to help them grow into mature Christians.
- An evangelism leader who can train and lead others in relating our faith to the unchurched.
- A spiritual leader with the ability to lead and train the congregation in the development of spiritual discipline.
- A preacher, biblically based and rooted in the Anglican tradition, that can lead and counsel the saints for the ministry objectives of our church.
