Search for a New Vicar

Tags: news job

We are very excited to announce that the search has begun for a new full time vicar for St Michael and All Angels. The advertisement for the position runs as follows:

St Michael and All Angels (SMAA) is an Anglo-Catholic parish in the centre of Christchurch that welcomes people from across Ōtautahi Christchurch and further afield to experience God through ever-deeper engagement in the life of the sacraments. St Michael’s offers a sanctuary of peace and the presence of Christ in the centre of the city. For more than a century, SMAA has been a centre for the Anglo-Catholic movement in Aotearoa New Zealand.

We seek an experienced Anglican priest who will partner with the congregation to grow new connections with the central city, to cultivate our long-standing relationship with St Michael’s Church School, and to sustain and develop the liturgical worship which we treasure. A parish profile and an expression of interest form are available by emailing the Executive Assistant at the Diocese of Christchurch: or by phoning 03 348 6701.

Applications (which must include a CV, a response to the profile of not more than four pages, and a statement about your faith and personal approach to ministry) are to be sent to by 5pm on Monday 17 October 2022.
