About the Role

Senior Minister (Rector) (Anglican Parish of King Island, Tasmania)


If you love island life, and you have a vision for taking the good news of Jesus Christ to the ends of the earth. We are seeking a person who can support the ongoing work of the congregation on King Island to reach out to their neighbours and see them become disciples of Jesus.

In partnership with the Anglican Diocese of Tasmania, BCA has been committed to the ministry on King Island since 1998. This partnership includes financial support, prayer support, and pastoral support for the Field Staff (the clergy person and their family).

To serve as Field Staff with BCA, both the candidate for the role and their spouse will need to undertake a selection process which includes interviews, psychological assessments, and referee checks.

About Anglican Parish of King Island, Tasmania

The Anglican Parish of King Island has one weekly service on Sunday mornings. The vibrant congregation has some young families, as well as a substantial youth and children’s ministry. The parish has done some youth mentoring in the local school.

There has been a weekly community radio segment instigated by the outgoing Rector, and it may be possible to continue this. The parish is well embedded in the close-knit community of the island, and there are always opportunities to draw alongside them. They occasionally join in with an ecumenical service with our Uniting and Catholic brothers and sisters.

The church was rebuilt in 2004 and seats 130 people. There is a modern, well-equipped meeting room, kitchen and toilet block. The church is designed in modern brick and glass construction.

About Anglican Diocese of Tasmania

Bishop Richard Condie, the current Bishop, wants making disciples of Jesus to be at the core of everything we do. He also highly values training and support for church leaders – this includes each ministry leader in the Diocese having a coach/mentor, being in a cohort with others at the same life/ministry stage, and money and time given from the parish for professional development each year.

The current group of clergy/ministry leaders (about 80 in total) meet together twice a year and are highly supportive of each other in gospel partnership.
