Holy Trinity Leven and St Mary’s Brandesburton
Priest in Charge
We are looking for an outgoing and prayerful Minister who will both lead our two churches and engage with our communities and those who don’t yet worship with us. Our churches are in good heart and hopeful for the future. We are very positive about this newly shaped role and await a Minister to lead us forward in both our mission and ministry.
Our deanery plan has proposed a re-organisation which separates our two churches from the larger benefice we were part of. Whilst we continue to enjoy good relations with the other churches we welcome this opportunity to have ministry which is more focussed upon our villages. We understand the role is only part time and we are committed to share with you in the life and leadership of the church. There are also two licensed Ministers to offer ministerial support and a deanery committed to working together.
Our attractive villages are equally well placed for enjoying the East Coast, the Yorkshire Wolds and the market town of Beverley. We hope you’ll want to join us and lead us forward into the plans we know God has for us.
We are looking for a Minster who brings
The Diocese of York, led and guided by Archbishop Stephen Cottrell, takes in much of North and East Yorkshire. As the largest diocese in England, geographically, the area is very diverse, featuring a multitude of needs and opportunities. This includes the bustling urban centres of York, Hull and Middlesbrough, the beautiful North Yorkshire Moors National Park, and the incomparable Yorkshire Coast; as well as areas of deprivation in some of our urban and smaller rural and coastal communities.
Our mission and ministry relies on thousands of people - lay and ordained, volunteer and paid. Our diocesan teams provide a wide range of support services to our mission and ministry, including lifelong learning for ministry, the care of church buildings, and safeguarding. Together, we are striving to be a people who are ‘Living Christ’s Story’. We want to be a simpler, bolder, humbler church which in its diversity reflects the communities it serves. We are bringing renewed focus and fresh energy to achieving our aims:
Our approach is aligned with a commitment to the best of our parochial inheritance, to the poorest communities, and to the financial realities we face.
Under current immigration rules, it is not generally possible for us to appoint clergy who are not already eligible to work in the UK.
