Job Description

HUDDERSFIELD EPISCOPAL AREA

PRIEST IN CHARGE OF THE PARISHES OF LEPTON, EMLEY AND FLOCKTON

 

These three parishes which are currently on a journey towards becoming a United Benefice are praying for an energetic and motivating woman or man with a sense of humour who can:

 

  • Co-ordinate the existing talent and enthusiasm across the three parishes for spreading the Good News of the Gospel
  • Help us to develop and deepen our faith and evolve our worship in creative, inspiring and imaginative ways
  • Be a visible and active presence within our three communities and encourage those on the fringe of church life to take the next step in faith
  • Engage with our younger people, inspire a new generation and enable us to nurture our relationship with our primary schools

 

  • In return we can offer:

  • Support, prayer, practical help, talents and tea (or curry and a beer if you prefer!)

  • Friendly and welcoming congregations

  • Enthusiastic and capable lay people, two retired clergy and three Readers who will support you (holiday cover provided!)

  • Three parishes who are paying their parish share in full

  • A modern family home in Lepton within beautiful Yorkshire countryside

  • Three PCCs who are excited to work together to support a priest working across the parishes
