CHS is in an exciting state of transition, being led by the Holy Spirit to explore new ways of being church. We are being led step by step on a journey of faith and growth, and God has miraculously provided resources, both people and financial, as the needs have arisen. We are spending a lot of time as a church staff, leadership and church family, in conversation, prayer and discussion as to how the vision God has given us will be practically achieved, and continue to be excited at new developments and ideas.

We are seeking to appoint a new Minister-in-Charge from 1 January 2023 (negotiable) who will join our team on this pioneering journey. CHS is one of six churches in the Anglican Parish of St. John’s, Wynberg, Cape Town, and the minister will also serve as an Associate Rector in the Parish. He/she must be an ordained Anglican minister.

Through our recent survey and other discussions, we feel our new leader needs to be:

  • a person who has a deep and intimate relationship with God, is led by the Holy Spirit and experienced in prayer ministry in the gifts and power of the Holy Spirit,
  • gifted in preaching the Word of God to a diverse community,  
  • passionate to see God’s kingdom grow and influence the world around us,
  • a courageous and strategic team leader with a servant heart, and deeply sensitive to the inherited pain and divisions resulting from South Africa’s past history,
  • a leader with a heartfelt passion for mission outside the walls of our building, and a strong desire to welcome all to God’s Table.

He/she needs to have heard God’s call to this pioneering church and be ready to face the challenges that will arise with prayerful discernment and wise leadership.

Anyone wishing to explore and test God’s calling to lead our community is invited to submit a CV and covering letter to

The closing date for applications is Sunday 2nd October 2022.
