We are seeking a wise, prayerful and loving priest for these two parishes with three small churches which serve an area with the highest Muslim percentage in the country. He will seek to grow the churches in line with Vison 2026 and in so doing work closely with other Presence and Engagement Parishes in Blackburn. Whilst the new priest in charge will have pastoral responsibility across all three churches, he will work with others to ensure that Sunday responsibilities are manageable. He will also play a part in re-imagining Christian Ministry across the northern part of the town as we seek to strengthen our presence and witness in these areas.
