Thank you for your interest in the post of parish Priest for Redcar.
St Peter's stands at the centre of this interesting and characterful seaside town. There is very much in the sense of being the church for the community: alongside a pattern of well-ordered, welcoming worship and of supporting people of all ages in their Christian journey, the parish has a strong record of reaching out widely in service and in civic engagement.
Our profile shares something of the dedication, possibility and excitement that is true of the parish. At the same time it is realistic about the challenges being faced.
We believe we have opportunities to discern a new vision for growing the church and moving forward.

The Diocese of York takes in much of North and East Yorkshire, including the cities of York, Hull and Middlesbrough, and two National Parks. Extending from the River Tees to the River Humber, and from around the A1 road to the incomparable Yorkshire coast, the area is home to around 1.4 million people.
Welcome to the Diocese of York in the Church of England;
· a family of 579 churches and 125 schools in 442 parishes
· committed to the praise of God through Jesus Christ and service to others
· led and guided in their faith and work by the Archbishop of York, Stephen Cottrell.
The appointment of a new Archbishop of York has encouraged the reshaping of the Diocesan vision and examination of our priorities. We are determined to become a simpler, bolder, humbler and more diverse church of missionary disciples which is Christ centred and Jesus shaped, ensuring in partnership with other churches that there is a Christian witness in every community. We wish to be a people who are ‘Living Christ’s Story.’
