Do you relish a challenge to help churches to grow together and become more mission focussed? We are looking for a vibrant, energetic and sensitive, full-time Priest-in-Charge to serve the united benefice of Millom, which is a town on the north shore of the estuary of the River Duddon, approximately 6 miles north of Barrow-in-Furness, in South Lakeland, with a population of around 7,289
The Diocese of Carlisle (which is coterminous with the county of Cumbria), has been pro-active in seeking to respond to national trends in church life by the formation of around 40 ‘Mission Communities’ across the county to respond to the challenges and opportunities we face. This context has served to focus attention on exploring (and re-discovering) other exciting and innovative models of church life, ministry (lay and ordained, full and part time as well as self-supporting) and mission. The Diocese of Carlisle is committed to the God for All vision (see www.godforall.org.uk ) and part of that vision is the setting up of Mission Communities.
Please call The Archdeacon of Westmorland and Furness, Vernon Ross for an informal chat (015395) 34717.
