Positions Vacant

Come and join God’s mission in Tasmania!

Would you like to come and join a great team of church leaders, working together to fulfil our shared vision to see A church for Tasmania, making disciples of Jesus?

The Diocese of Tasmania encourages the ministry of both women and men in all spheres of our church life. We support the ordination of women in the Church as deacons and priests, and women have significant leadership roles in the Diocese. We recognise a diversity of views on this topic. We do not require a specific view to be held by our ministry leaders, however we expect all our ministry leaders to act with charity in accordance with this policy, and to be raising up and training more women to serve as God has gifted them.

We regularly have opportunities for Rectors to lead revitalisations in local churches, as well as for Rectors to build on currently fruitful ministries.

There are also occasional opportunities for Assistant Ministers (curates), Youth or Children’s ministry positions, and church planters.

Our Diocesan Vision is that all clergy will have a lively and growing relationship with Jesus and be convinced of the Bible’s centrality, with a commitment to preaching and teaching it. We seek Rectors who will be highly skilled leaders of change, mission, and disciple-making ministries. They will be committed to ongoing personal and professional development, and review. 

We place a high value on providing training, support and coaches for all our ministry leaders, and work together as a team across Tasmania.

Please pray and seek God if you think this might be you.  All current positions are advertised on this page, but you can also contact Stephen Carnaby, Director of Ministry Development (DMD@anglicantas.org.au) to express general interest in future possibilities and to find out more about ministry in Tasmania.
