We are currently looking for a minister for the North Charge of our parish. The ideal person to take on this charge is someone who will bring enthusiasm and energy, be committed to parochial care, and take a lead role in congregational growth and development, with emphasis on children and young people.
The successful candidate will preach in churches in Unst, Yell, Brae, and Ollaberry. In addition, you will play a key lead position for Mission to the whole of Shetland. The ideal applicant, therefore, should already have leadership experience in this area, not necessarily in a rural/island setting. You will have to be highly motivated, gregarious, and committed to equal rights for all. The current Ministry Team is likely to change once the Transitional and Pioneer Minister posts come to an end and applicants should be aware of this.
A warm welcome awaits anyone who takes up this post in an island renowned for its friendly people where community involvement plays an important part.

The Kirk Session has agreed that those from outside the UK who have completed the familiarisation process can apply for the vacancy.
You must be an ordained minister of the Church of Scotland or graduate candidate to apply for this role. Please contact the Interim Moderator, Rev. David Stewart, to apply:
