Centre for Chaplaincy in Education. We are delighted to share a new Chaplaincy Vacancy in the Midlands.
Resident Pastoral (Chaplaincy) Assistant, Oswestry School, Shropshire. Oswestry School and St Oswald’s Parish Church offer an exciting opportunity to serve two close-knit communities. We are looking for a suitably experienced person to be a Pastoral (Chaplaincy) Assistant.
Oswestry School is an independent, co-educational day & boarding school, with an 11-18 senior school of c.350 pupils and a 4-11 junior school (Bellan House) of c.120 pupils. The strong ethos of the school is reflected in its fabulous pastoral care and sense of community. The School recently underwent inspection, with an excellent report. As well as providing a fantastic learning and living environment for young people, Oswestry School offers an enjoyable, challenging and rewarding working environment. The School has a Christian foundation and has its own small chapel.
St Oswald’s Parish Church is at the heart of the town of Oswestry, a Church of England Church led by the Reverend Harvey Gibbons. It is an environment which enables all to come closer to God through prayer and worship, reflection and action.
St Oswald’s and Oswestry School have a relationship of more than six centuries, with the original school building still standing beside the churchyard. The School supports the Church’s musical life with generous scholarships. Oswestry School holds weekly chapel services as well as its larger celebrations, including Founder’s Day, in St Oswald’s Church.
