Skerton, Lancaster

St Luke’s and St Chad’s parishes in Skerton, Lancaster are seeking an incumbent for their next season as they work together to be healthy churches transforming their community, as part of Vision 2026 in the Diocese of Blackburn.

The parishes are suburban & estates ministry set in Lancaster, a vibrant university city, with good schools and excellent transport links to all parts of the country. Lancaster is a stone’s throw from Morecambe Bay and the Lune Valley, 30 minutes from the Lake District and Yorkshire Dales.

We pray for a priest of energy and enthusiasm to help us serve the needs of our parishes. A person of vision, compassion and mission who, with our support, will build an effective and relevant church life serving the Skerton community. We would love to see growth in children, young people, family & unity. Both churches have active groups of uniformed organisations.

We offer you the best of both worlds: traditional and modern church buildings plus a well-equipped hall; church and county primary schools. Our team of committed and co-operative wardens and PCCs are looking forward to this new opportunity in our historic yet modern city of Lancaster. We look forward to meeting you and taking the opportunities in faith together.
