For more than 1400 years, God has been worshipped at Canterbury Cathedral and, to this day, its vision is ‘To Show People Jesus’. It is Mother Church of the worldwide Anglican Communion, the seat of the Archbishop of Canterbury, a daily place of prayer, worship and pilgrimage, as well as a World Heritage Site.

Canterbury Cathedral is seeking a new Dean with a deep and contagious love for God and God’s church, and who is committed to mission, evangelism and engagement. They will be an experienced leader, who can confidently and creatively lead the Cathedral forward with a sense of joyful hope for the future.

The next Dean will also have a passion for the Anglican Communion and for developing and promoting Canterbury Cathedral’s place at its heart.

We are committed to nurturing a culture of diversity and inclusion and want to encourage applications from a diverse range of people. If you have the gifts and experience we need – and sense that God might be calling you – then we would like to hear from you.

If you would like to discuss the role, you can arrange a conversation with Stephen Knott (the Archbishops’ Secretary for Appointments) by e-mailing aaad.office@churchofengland.org
