This post has the potential to be a crucial part of building up a large and thriving Christian ministry in a populous part of Leeds.
The Headingley Team Ministry (St Michael’s Headingley and St Chad’s Far Headingley) has been working informally with the parish of St Margaret and All Hallows, Leeds. Following informal consultation with the three PCCs, a formal consultation is due to take place on a proposal to bring the three parishes together into one Team.
The intention is that the person appointed as Team Vicar with primary responsibility for St Chad’s will, on the retirement of the present Team Rector, have the capacity and experience to become the Team Rector.
The person appointed will be supportive of the Diocesan strategy, and in the particular the emerging Diocesan Strategy, and in particular the Resource Church programme in the Leeds Area.

The Diocese of Leeds was created at Easter 2014. It comprises five Episcopal Areas, each coterminous with an Archdeaconry. This is now one of the largest dioceses in the country. It covers an area of around 2,425 square miles, and a population of around 2,642,400 people.
The diocese comprises major cities (Bradford, Leeds, Wakefield), large industrial and post-industrial towns (Halifax, Huddersfield, Dewsbury), market towns (Harrogate, Skipton, Ripon, Richmond and Wetherby), and deeply rural areas (the Dales). The whole of life is here, along with all the richness, diversity and complexities of a changing world.
The Diocesan Bishop (The Rt Rev’d Nick Baines) is assisted by five Area Bishops (Bradford, Huddersfield, Kirkstall, Wakefield and Ripon), and five archdeacons (Bradford, Halifax, Leeds, Pontefract, Richmond & Craven). The Bishop of Kirkstall is the Rt Rev’d Paul Slater.
Our vision as the Diocese is about confident clergy equipping confident Christians to live and tell the good news of Jesus Christ. For all of our appointments we are seeking clergy who have a joyful and confident faith which has inspired a track record of church growth, both numerically and spiritually.
