The Parish of St John Read and St Peter Simonstone serve two adjacent commuter villages between Burnley and Whalley close to the slopes of Pendle Hill. The community is a close-knit and active one and the Parish is seeking a priest who will engage fully with village life. The Parish benefits from two excellent church schools with a strong Christian ethos and St Peter’s meets in the school hall.
