Post of Team Rector and Post of Team Vicar of Egremont.
We are looking for a new Team Rector and a Team Vicar, on one and a half stipends. We would be prepared to consider a husband and wife "team".
There is the possibility of an additional post as part time Hospital Chaplain; the role is currently under review, so a conversation with the Archdeacon would be the appropriate next step.
Egremont is an historic market town situated between the World Heritage Site of the Lake District National Park and England’s ‘Energy Coast’. Its economy and community (pop. 9,000) were shaped significantly by mining associated with West Cumbrian iron and steel production. More recently it has become closely linked with the nuclear industry. The area continues to include significant farming.
