Interim Change Ministers

Ref: JN012022

Durham Diocese is looking to appoint experienced parish priests to be Interim Change Ministers. The posts are funded for a minimum of 7 years. They will work as agents of change in parishes, equipping and enabling PCCs and congregations to deal with barriers to growth and change. This will include enabling the parishes to:


  • come to terms with the past, lose old fears, find new hopes;

  • consider future witness, mission and ministry;

  • reassess resources, needs and priorities;

  • see where and how change is needed, and work through inevitable transitions; and

  • make plans for the future and prepare for the next chapter of life

The successful candidates will be employed by the DDBF, and act as SSM Priest in Charge of the parishes where they are placed, fulfilling all usual duties, and ensuring a good platform is built for the arrival of new ministers, where appropriate.


The salary grade will be 6.3 (£42,394) – the successful candidates will not be expected to move house between postings and will be eligible to remain in the clergy pension scheme.
