The Bishop of Manchester is looking to appoint a committed and collaborative priest as Archdeacon of Rochdale.


As members of the Bishop’s Leadership Team, our three Archdeacons play a key role in leading and supporting our parishes and mission communities at an exciting time of change.


The successful candidate will be creative in encouraging new forms of mission and ministry while working to ensure the wellbeing of our clergy and lay leaders.
