Vicar : St Michael and All Angels, North Hull

Our large single church parish clearly identifies with its community and we are seeking a Vicar who will join us and love both our parish and our church family. We want to deepen our love for God and follow Christ’s call more fully as we seek to see God’s church grow here. We know that this will involve some changes and we look forward to exploring this with our new Vicar.

We are not large in number but we are a committed and loving church family, who will support you and work alongside you. We are blessed with good buildings that are used by the community. The diocese have identified us as a ‘Revitalise’ parish and will be investing in us to support our future growth. We look forward meeting the person God is calling to join us and discovering the plans God has for us all.

As part of the diocesan vision of ‘Living Christ’s Story’, Hull Deanery has set out proposals for greater collaboration and sharing of resources. There is an expectation that all of our clergy have a commitment to working in partnership with others and a willingness to collaborate wherever it is appropriate.

  7. To increase the generosity of giving from the congregation and to enable the Free Will Offer to the diocese to grow.
  8. To engage fully in the diocesan ‘Revitalise’ programme
  9. To participate within the life of the Deanery and in support of the deanery plan.

  • Lead us into the next stage of our life and mission

About Us

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:

  • Becoming more like Christ
  • Reaching those we currently don't
  • Growing in discipleship, influence and numbers
  • Transforming our finances and structures

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.
