Christ Church Oxford Patrons and the Bishop of Lancaster are seeking a Vicar for St Michael Kirkham.

Friendly market town within the Fylde, roughly midway between Preston and Blackpool, population around 7400. The local area is on cusp of significant, transformative investment and transport links are excellent.

We are praying for a new Vicar:

  • with ideas and energy to help us drive our outreach forward, particularly amongst younger people and to grow the link between the church and our schools,
  • to help us deepen our discipleship, in particular able to connect the Bible to everyday life to help us explore our faith and developing the spiritual life of the church,
  • to enjoy our sacramental life and seek to develop new opportunities and styles of worship,
  • to help us engage with our Project 2022 and the Diocesan Vision 2026,
  • take an active role in our town, taking the civic life and traditions of the town seriously,
  • who will love Kirkham and St Michael’s as much as we do (and be prepared to receive that same love in return!).

Deadline: Friday 9th April 2021 12 noon

For an informal conversation about the post please contact the Archdeacon of Lancaster: Ven David Picken (david.picken@blackburn.anglican.org)

Interviews will be held on Friday 23rd April 2021
