Thank you for your interest in the post of House for Duty Priest-in-Charge for the parishes of Easington, Liverton and Liverton Mines
These small communities have ancient origins but (especially in the case of Liverton Mines) have experienced social economic change in recent history.
We hope that the priest who comes here will (like their predecessor, now retired) bring a steady pastoral presence, and will help the small congregations to regain their confidence and grow.
We offer the support and companionship particularly of other clergy serving in other parishes in this coastland part of historic North Yorkshire.
Because of the small population, the post is offered on a House for Duty basis. We would consider candidates irrespective of age, subject to the normal procedures including those that apply specifically to clergy who have reached the normal age for retirement.
Should you wish to have an informal conversation about this vacancy, please contact
Interviews for shortlisted candidates are due to take place on Wednesday 13th September 2023

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.’
