Vicar of New Mills

Would you enjoy working in the beauty of the High Peak in a ‘single church’ parish, with an Anglo-Catholic worship tradition? 

New Mills is a historic town (pop 10,000) with a village atmosphere. It has a very strong & active sense of community, plus excellent rail and road links to Manchester and Sheffield. The dedicated and hard-working congregation is mixed, friendly and welcoming. There are numerous opportunities for mission and ministry.

We seek a vicar who:

  • is an approachable, confident and sensitive leader and orator who can support and nurture people’s gifts and potential
  • will provide a vision for future growth and is sympathetic to our liturgical and choral traditions
  • will enjoy working to further develop close links with both our adjacent C of E Primary school and with the wider New Mills community
  • will help us explore new ways of collaborative working within the deanery vision of 'Mission Community'.

The post benefits from a modern and recently refurbished vicarage and heavily used parish hall within the church grounds.

Closing date for applications: 12 noon on 16th August 2019
Interview Date: 19th September 2019
