Coventry Cathedral exists to reconcile the world to God and one another
Worship and Welcome lie at the heart of our Cathedral life. We meet with God and each other in this iconic space, both Ruins and mid-20th century Cathedral, for the reconciliation which is the gift of God in Jesus Christ. Would you like to be responsible for leading us forward in these areas, working with a dynamic and diverse team across the Cathedral?
We are looking for a person who will help us give practical and liturgical expression to the ministry of reconciliation which is our particular vocation. They will have liturgical skill and experience, and not be afraid to push boundaries. They will be ready to embrace a variety of worship styles, and be sympathetic to those who are both familiar and less comfortable with traditional cathedral worship. Above all, they will have a vision for hospitality, ensuring that pilgrims, tourists, worshippers and all who come here will know themselves welcome.
This post is open to ordained Anglicans, in orders for at least six years. We would be especially pleased to receive applications from those of Global Majority Heritage. Following the withdrawal of our nominated candidate from an earlier round of interviews, we would welcome fresh applications in response to the revised job description.
