Senior Chaplain Vacancy

[The Office of the Bishop Suffragan for Armed Services and Federal Ministries received the following letter noting a very interesting senior chaplain vacancy.] THE POST OF SENIOR CHAPLAIN CHAPLAINCY OF DUBAI AND SHARJAH WITH THE NORTHERN EMIRATES with particular responsibility for Holy Trinity Dubai Dear fellow-bishop I’m writing to a variety of Primates in the Communion to draw your attention to an interesting and senior vacancy in this Diocese of Cyprus and the Gulf in the province of Jerusalem and the Middle East. This senior chaplaincy and its team of five or so clergy serve most of the United Arab Emirates along the Persian Gulf. In addition to Anglicans our various churches host many other Christian denominations, and tens of thousands of worshippers use our premises every weekend. Excellent organisational skills, the ability to think strategically, a desire to motivate collegaues, and a warm pastoral heart will all be necessary in the succesful candidate, along with an ability to think intelligently about Islam and get on well with the Muslim host-society. A priest of central, or inclusively evangelical, inclination would be particularly suitable. The post is currently being advertised in sections of the church press, eg the Church Times of London. Full details will be sent to interested clergy if they email With best wishes + Michael Cyprus & the Gulf:
