Job Description

St. George’s Chorley

Vicar of St. George’s Chorley – a town centre church

 

Church building – newly restored

Disciple building – that’s your job!

 

This single-church parish with a large and lively congregation in the

The main challenges for our new Vicar (within the diocesan Vision 2026 of healthy churches transforming communities) are:

  • To engage further with the many young families who come for Baptism and school entry
  • To build on the well-attended Pilgrim course, to enable people to move on in discipleship and identify God’s call on their life
  • To build on the strong links that already exist between Church and School

pplication form can be found at www.blackburn.anglican.org
