Thank you for your interest in coming to work in the Diocese of Bath and Wells. Here in Somerset, we are committed to our vision to live and tell the story of Jesus, whatever our role.

The diocese serves 940,000 people from Portishead in the north to Crewkerne in the south, Minehead in the west and Frome in the east. We have 466 parishes and 181 church schools.

Staff in the central team are based in modern offices on the edge of Wells, which is home to the diocesan Cathedral.

Inclusion and diversity

We are also committed to being a truly representative and diverse diocese and we recognise our need to develop in diversity. We welcome applications from the full range of those under-represented amongst us. You can find out more about how we are seeking to champion diversity in Bath and Wells and our Revd Narinder Tegally, our UKME Champion.


We are committed to the safeguarding and protection of all children, young people and adults, and the care and nurture of children within our church communities.  We will carefully select, train and support all those with any responsibility within the Church, in line with Safer Recruitment principles.
