New worshipping communities amongst 20s, 30s, 40s
The Diocese of York now has funding to develop new worshipping communities with a focus on those in their 20s, 30s and 40s, between the Rivers Humber and Tees and between the A1 and the Yorkshire coast.
This is part of a wider intention to ‘reach those we currently don’t’, standing alongside emerging plans to develop the church’s ministry amongst those living in poverty.
Plans include placing 14 full-time ministers and up to 25 part-time ministers within existing parishes, tasked with enabling these new communities and inspiring fresh approaches in other areas, focused on the needs of younger adults.
20s – 40s Ministers
We seek missionally-minded clergy and licensed lay workers who have a passion to see younger adults become disciples, who have proven ability in taking the initiative, being imaginative and working ‘outside the box.
We have opportunities at three locations. All are in the top 10% most deprived nationally. All have been carefully chosen for their potential, and their supportive incumbents and PCCs:
Bridlington – Christ Church bit.ly/20-40brid
Vigorous parish in a seaside resort and town. Centrally-located with an existing ministry across the town, the new development is welcomed by the Deanery.
Hull – Drypool bit.ly/20-40hull
Large parish on the East side of Hull, former UK City of Culture 2017. Team Ministry has two parish churches and a long-term plant in a community centre.
Scarborough - St Mary’s & Holy Apostles bit.ly/20-40scar
A major focus for church life in this famous seaside resort and historic town. The ‘Rainbow Centre’ is a hub for social action and reach into the parish.
