  • a happy and energetic personality with a sense of humour who will work positively with lay support encouraging and inspiring them to develop and use their gifts
  • someone who is looking for the challenge of leading mission into the educational establishments as well as the more deprived areas of the parish

We can offer you


  • a team of 11 Lay Pastoral Assistants and a supportive P.C.C.
  • a retired priest with permission to officiate who takes an active part in the Church Ministry and services
  • administrative support from a dedicated Parish Administrator
