Warden, Sacrista Prebend

This is an opportunity that might suit a recently retired Priest, Reader or Licensed Lay Minister seeking something out of the ordinary.

Sacrista Prebend, a property owned by Southwell Minster, is made available by the Cathedral Chapter as a house of hospitality, retreat, refreshment and Christian formation for individuals and groups within and beyond the diocese of Southwell and Nottingham. Cathedral clergy share celebration of the Eucharist in the House on a rota basis, every Monday and Wednesday. The House maintains an annual programme of conducted Quiet Days; provides bed and breakfast accommodation for a small number of private retreatants; and serves as a meeting place for a large number of groups from the diocese and beyond. These activities are led by the Warden, overseen by a Management Committee and supported by an employed, part-time Bursar.

The present Warden is standing down and a replacement is sought. The Cathedral Chapter is fully committed to the House and its future, and it is exploring ways in which that might develop. We are looking for a Warden who will work creatively with the Dean and Chapter and who is open to the leading of the Holy Spirit as the Cathedral develops these aspects of their vision and strategy.
