Interim Priest in Charge - East Leeds Revival
Parishes of: Burmantofts, St Agnes and St Stephen; Harehills, St Cyprian; and Halton, St Wilfrid
This is one of three Interim Priest in Charge posts for ‘East Leeds Revival’, our project to revitalise and grow the life and mission of the Church in this part of inner East Leeds. The vacancies which have occurred give us a unique opportunity to create these posts, so as to give the benefices leadership and pastoral care while new and sustainable arrangements are developed.
The three priests will work closely together with each other and with the Area Bishop, Archdeacon, Area Dean and other colleagues to drive forward change while loving and supporting existing congregations. They work towards optimising arrangements for worship, evangelism, mission, pastoral care and resources, including buildings, across the benefices involved.
It is envisaged that proposals for pastoral reorganisation may emerge from this ministry.
The two other posts are (i) Cross Green, St Hilda; Leeds, St Wifrid; and Richmond Hill, St Saviour; and (ii) Gipton, The Epiphany; and Roundhay, St John (Oakwood Anglican-Methodist LEP) which becomes vacant in July.
For an informal discussion regarding the vacancy, please contact Archdeacon Paul Ayers at firstname.lastname@example.org
Closing date: 6/6/23
Interview date: 23/6/23
