We are praying for a new incumbent for our evangelical parish in the suburbs of South Manchester. We have two welcoming church families with their own distinct characters but the same core values and vision based on the word of God in the Bible. We are looking for a minister who will join with us in our aims to reach out and share God’s love with the local community, guide the churches as they seek to work more closely together and grow younger, wider and deeper.

We are looking for a minister who:

  • Is passionate in their ministry to preach and teach the word of God, and who can ignite the same passion in others
  • Has the leadership skills to develop a vision and inspire and motivate the congregations to work together to achieve it
  • Values personal devotion, prayer and reflection and encourages these disciplines in the everyday faith of church members
  • Will develop our work with children and young people and draw more families into church
  • Has effective pastoral and communication skills and a heart for both members of the church and the local community
  • Is enthusiastic about evangelism

Closing Date: 3rd July 2022

The Diocese of Chester is in the province of York in the Church of England, part of the global Anglican Communion. For more information about our life, ministry and work please visit our website www.chester.anglican.org We are linked with the Anglican Church of Melanesia in the Solomon Islands and the Dioceses of Aru and Boga in the Democratic Republic of Congo.

The Diocese covers an area of 1025 square miles, approximately the old Victorian County of Chester, including parts which subsequently became absorbed into Merseyside and Greater Manchester. The Rivers Mersey and Tame approximately delineate the boundary with Liverpool and Manchester. There are areas of dense urban population, mainly in the north, stretching from Birkenhead to East Manchester. There are prosperous suburban regions of West and South Wirral, Chester and south of Manchester, with a mainly rural heartland, bounded by the Derbyshire Pennines and the Welsh Border. The overall population is around 1.6 million.

The Diocesan Bishop is Mark Tanner, Bishop of Birkenhead Julie Conalty and the Bishop of Stockport is Samuel Corley.

The Cathedral for the Diocese is in Chester.

The Diocese is divided into two archdeaconries: Chester covering the western half and Macclesfield the eastern, each with nine deaneries. There are 273 parishes, about 100 of which can be described as rural. Compared with many dioceses, there are few teams, and few multi-parish benefices. There are approximately 231 stipendiary clergy. The ministry of Readers and Pastoral Workers is important, with over 400 licensed. The role of self-supporting ministers is increasing, with over 80 in post at present.

Roughly speaking, the Archdeaconry of Macclesfield covers that part of the diocese to the east of the M6, plus the area around Crewe and Nantwich. The Archdeaconry of Chester covers the rest of the diocese to the west of the M6. Each archdeaconry has a broad mix of urban and rural parishes. The Archdeacon of Chester lives in Chester, and the Archdeacon of Macclesfield lives in Congleton. Both now work from Church House, Daresbury.
