Lead Chaplain, Bluewater £31 ,000 – £33,500

The Chaplaincy Service at Bluewater serves one of the largest retail complexes in the UK, providing support to the retail and facilities staff in the context of their daily life and work.

The chaplaincy team consists of one paid, full-time Lead Chaplain and a large team of volunteer chaplains. We are now seeking to replace the present Lead Chaplain who has filled the post since 2011 and is moving into church-based ministry.

As Lead Chaplain you must be a practising Christian, lay or ordained, with a sound understanding of the nature, purpose and vision of chaplaincy and with a proven ministry in pastoral care.

Bluewater is an all-age, multi-ethnic, multi-faith community where diversity is valued and all are welcomed. The ability to communicate the Christian message in this context calls for grace and sensitivity.

If you feel you could meet the challenge of this unique position, a full job and person specification, together with an application form can be obtained at

This post is subject to an Occupational Requirement that the post holder is a committed Christian under Part 1 of Schedule 9 to the Equality Act 2010.

We would ask any Ministers who considering applying for this role to have a discussion with Rev John Hellyer before applying for this role.

Closing date: Friday 13th January at 17:00
