Benefice of Walkingham Hill


Yorkshire and Lincs


Ref: JN011772

Situated in in a beautiful part of North Yorkshire, close to Ripon, Harrogate and Knaresborough, the Benefice of Walkingham Hill includes the parishes of Arkendale, Copgrove, Farnham, Scotton and Staveley. These have the best of both rural and provincial communities, enjoying a picturesque rural location but situated within convenient distance of established towns. The people of the Benefice believe that it is a special place to worship, work and live.

We are looking forward to welcoming a new incumbent to support and lead us in the development of our mission and walk with us on our Christian journey. We trust our new incumbent will have inspirational and dynamic leadership qualities, will be able to spearhead the growth of the church community with energy and enthusiasm, and will be someone who is a strategic thinker, particularly to be able to work with the PCCs to create a vision and plan of what we want our benefice and churches to look like in five years’ time. We would welcome someone who is, above all, able to lead and inspire with confidence, in the pulpit, in PCC meetings and within the villages of the benefice and who will enjoy being a visible and approachable presence here.
