    We are two liberal catholic congregations sharing a desire to become beacons of Inclusive Church in all its dimensions in the middle of one of Britain's most vibrant and attractive cities.

    We are looking for a priest with energy, insight and passion to communicate a Gospel of Justice, Peace and Mercy.

    We hope our next vicar will be:

    • A growth-minded priest determined to see liberal churches grow
    • An advocate for Inclusive Church values
    • Someone excited at the prospect of turning our churches into hubs for the communities around them
    • Someone who can demonstrate a commitment to collaborative, as well as Incarnational, Ministry.

    What you will find are two gifted, thoughtful and supportive congregations with sound buildings, healthy finances and a mission to connect better with our neighbours and those disenchanted with the Church.

    We welcome applications from all sections of the community, particularly from underrepresented groups, including members of our black and minority ethnic (BME) communities

    Closing Date: 25 February 2018
    Familiarisation day: 21 March 2018
    Interviews: 22 March 2018

    Our preferred method of receiving completed application forms is through our email address
