- Develop our Christian discipleship and move people to experience God’s love.
- Demonstrate good team working and leadership skills.
- Reach out in love and pastoral care to people, both within and outside the church, and engage with our local community life.
- Show good communication and inter-personal skills for relating to those of widely different backgrounds and age groups.
- Bring scripture to life in preaching and teaching.
- Happily embrace a broad expression of worship.
- Seek to maintain the valued place of the Minster Church in the affection and heart of Ilminster town.
