Rector – The Grouped Parishes of Ahoghill and Portglenone

  • 390 households – 330 Ahoghill/60 Portglenone
  • Two church buildings

These parishes, which will soon become vacant, are to the west of Ballymena and have grown in recent years.

The priority of the parishes is to radiate Christ by building on existing good Church and community relations, by reaching out to new members and by engaging with those who are on the fringes of Church life.

The parishes are seeking to appoint a rector to:

  • develop gifts, talents and existing ministries:
  • help parishioners live out their faith through biblical teaching;
  • promote growth through initiatives;
  • work within the Connor Diocesan vision strategy.

Further information, including a brief parish profile, is available on request from

Enquiries should be received by Tuesday May 1st 2018.
