Vicar - Southport Holy Trinity and Priest in Charge of Southport All Saints
We are looking for an enthusiastic leader who can further develop the mission of these two Southport churches. Since early 2017 the two parishes have prayerfully embraced the idea of coming together in partnership. Both PCCs have been proactive in cultivating positive working relationships over the last year and are excited by the possibilities. They are looking for someone who can help them move forward to see a bigger church making a bigger difference.

All Saints is a smaller congregation which has been led by a Local Missional Leader (LML) while Holy Trinity, with a larger congregation, is a diverse town centre parish whose incumbent retired recently. The role is a stimulating, creative and demanding one which is supported by a significant number of gifted lay leaders.

The Vicar will have the use of the vicarage for Holy Trinity parish.
