Priest-in-Charge of the Benefice of Chapel-en-le-Firth and the Benefice of Chinley with Buxworth and Hayfield

Permanent full time stipendiary role

We are looking for an experienced and imaginative pastor, teacher and mission enabler who will come alongside our existing congregations offering additional capacity, expertise, inspiration, leadership, and guidance to build our confidence and further the mission and pastoral presence within our communities. We hope to strengthen our lay ministry teams and reach out to our communities particularly focussing on our schools, children, young people and families thereby growing in number. The two benefices are coming together for the first time and we want someone to explore questions of pastoral reorganisation with us.

You will find an eclectic and friendly mix of people and supportive PCCs who are looking for someone to nurture and encourage us and build on the work that is already happening.

You will need to be pastorally gifted, a confident teacher and nurturer and a skilled co-ordinator and be excited by the opportunity to think across boundaries and imagine new potential, possibilities and partnerships.

We offer you a desirable home within the beautiful and much desired High Peak.
