Situation Vacant: Parish Administrator

We are seeking a Parish Administrator with good communication skills to maintain an
efficient parish office, manage lettings, produce parish publications, and provide general
secretarial support to the Vicar.
St Mary’s is a lively and friendly parish church situated on the High Road at the heart of
the Balham neighbourhood in south-west London. We are an inclusive, diverse, and
modern liberal-catholic church seeking to enrich our local community through worship
and service.
The post is part-time (9.5 hours per week) at £10.20/hr (London Living Wage). As
Administrator, you must maintain regular office hours, but there is some flexibility in
establishing the pattern of work. You must be able to act on your own initiative, have
good IT skills, an eye for detail, and be comfortable working alongside volunteers. An
understanding of how a parish church works would be an advantage.
For further particulars, please contact the Vicar, the Revd Dr Robert Tobin, at, or on 020 8673 1188.
Applications by email (including a covering letter explaining your interest in the post,
your C.V., and two reference contacts) must be sent to the Vicar by Friday, 12
January 2018. Appropriate candidates will be invited to attend for interview.
In line with diocesan policy, enhanced DBS disclosure is required.

Reverend Robert Tobin Induction

The Rev’d Robert Tobin was Instituted and Inducted as Vicar of the parish by The Right Reverend Richard Cheetham Bishop of Kingston at the service on 4 September 2017 which brought the interregnum to an end; and so a new stage in the life of St Mary’s Balham begins.

This is Holy Week

For Christians Holy Week is the most holy time of the Churches year. We journey with Christ through His passion, His death and His Resurrection.

We have different styles of service each evening Monday to Thursday so that we can walk with Christ on His journey.

Please see the Church calendar(on the right hand side of this page) for details of all our Holy Week services.  You are welcome to one or to all of them.
