Over the last year, a dynamic team has been praying and working together with a vision for revitalising mission across three Deaneries in Liverpool diocese. Our dreams have now come to reality with a very substantial financial investment from the Church Commissioners to allow us to recruit a team of experienced church leaders, worship leaders, youth/children’s workers with strong operations, finance and technology support.
We are now looking for a leader to develop the Transform work in Warrington working alongside the Vicar of Holy Trinity who oversees the local ministry. There is a blueprint of ideas of what Transform hopes to be and we now need to create it on the ground at the heart of our towns such that the vision can become a reality.
