Telford Minster is a carefully thought-out project to revive Christian life in a complex and emerging new town in the Northwest Midlands, providing a diocesan resource for the wider Salop episcopal area. The project is funded by both the SDF (Strategic Development Fund) and the Lichfield Diocese and operates under a Bishop’s Mission Order (BMO), covering the whole of Telford in the Lichfield and Hereford Diocese.
We are an evangelical and charismatic church: We are passionate about the scriptures revealing all that is necessary for salvation and lifelong discipleship and believe that the Holy Spirit is at work in the local church and equips disciples to live out their faith in Christ by giving charismatic gifts. These gifts are to strengthen the local church, for mission and evangelism, as well as highlighting sin and calling people to faith.
We are currently in the first year, running up to a launch in December 2020 and are aiming to plant ten new communities into Telford within the next five years, following the concept of gathered and scattered church. A curacy at Telford Minster would provide a unique opportunity to see a church grow and eventually plant missional congregations across Telford.
