Job Description


St Mary the Virgin


The challenge is to build on a strong, traditional parish ministry to grow the church in this large village (pop. 15,000+) on the outskirts of Leeds. The PCC’s three priorities are:

  • Grow the congregation both numerically and spiritually.
  • Develop and implement a mission strategy to reach out to young families and teenagers.
  • Develop potential lay leaders to achieve this.


The need is for empowering leadership that will go beyond welcome to develop a culture of invitation with the gospel


The foundations include: well re-ordered church and modern parish centre in good condition; healthy finances; strong occasional office ministries; positive profile in the community; ‘central’ churchmanship tradition.


The Diocese of Leeds is committed to supporting confident clergy
enabling confident Christians to live and tell the good news of Jesus Christ.
