Advanced Notice - 2016 Curacies

Incumbents who would like to be considered by the Bishop’s Core Group for the training of a curate from July 2016 will need to attend a briefing session about national and local patterns of curacy before submitting an application.

If you have not trained a curate before, or for some time, now is an exciting time to explore the possibility and you are warmly encouraged to attend a briefing session. If an informal initial conversation would help you consider the possibilities please do contact Suzanne Matthews .

Briefing sessions will be held at St James’ House on 29 January 2015 10am to 11.30am and 4 February 1.30pm – 3pm. To book on to one of these briefing sessions and receive an information pack please contact Debbie Ellison on either 0151 705 2145 or

Please note the deadline for completed applications is 20th March 2015 and no applications will be considered without attendance at a briefing session.
