VICAR TO THE PARISH OF ST MARY'S MONKSEATON
The Acting Bishop of Newcastle wishes to appoint a Vicar to the Parish of St Mary’s Monkseaton.
This single parish benefice, situated in the attractive seaside town of Whitley Bay, has a large, active and inclusive Christian community. Just ten miles from Newcastle with excellent transport links to the city, the parish is bounded by the recently regenerated sea-front and close to the glorious Northumberland coastline.
The congregation is well resourced with a strong tradition as a training parish and offers strengths in the areas of music, social action, hospitality, community outreach, building and grounds development. Our recently re-ordered building and soon-to-be developed outside space offer many opportunities for mission and ministry.
CORE FEATURES OF THE ROLE
We seek a good shepherd in the liberal catholic tradition who will inspire and nurture lay as well as ordained leadership, a compassionate and visionary leader who will explore diverse patterns of worship as well as increasing community engagement. Our new incumbent will be well supported by a lay and ordained staff team as well as a paid administrator.
This is an excellent opportunity for anyone who is looking to extend and develop their leadership in a context that is supportive, challenging and exciting.
