Vicar : All Saints South Cave and St Anne’s Ellerker with St Mary’s Broomfleet
Our committed and collaborative benefice is seeking a Vicar who will lead us into the next chapter of our life together as we look to realise the plans God has for us. We have great variety in our expressions of church life, worship and ministry but there is a shared commitment to reach our communities with the transforming love of God.
Our new Vicar will be self-aware, enjoy variety in ministry, bringing a collaborative and flexible approach to what they do. They will have a passionate faith and depth of prayer that enriches them and will inspire us.
We don’t expect our Vicar to do everything and we wouldn’t want to appoint someone who feels that they must. We work well as a team, with committed wardens, lay and ordained colleagues and a benefice administrator. We will pray for you, support you practically and enjoy sharing in ministry with you.
You will find us in attractive countryside, west of Hull and with good transport links nearby. We are praying for you, excited about our future and look forward to meeting you.

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.

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.
