St Anne’s is a strong and healthy Parish located at the heart of the seaside town of St Anne’s on the Fylde Coast. A strong tradition of generous, pastoral ministry has meant that the Church plays a key role in a settled community and they seek a priest who will delight in a ministry of presence whilst actively seeking opportunities for further growth.
The large Church Primary school will be an important focus for ministry. The Catholic and Choral traditions of the Parish mean that worship is dignified, Eucharistic and confidently Anglican. The Parish seeks a priest who will develop the many strengths of the Parish, build up lay leaders, expand ministry to families and grow the congregation in accordance with the Diocesan Vision 2026.
St Anne’s is a Parish of the Society of St Wilfrid and St Hilda and the PCC has submitted a Letter of Request under the House of Bishop’s Declaration. Pastoral and sacramental care is therefore delegated to the Bishop of Burnley.
