Vicar (Part Time) - Blundellsands St Michael

We are a church which has been transformed by the Leading Your Church into Growth programme and we would wish to continue to build our church on its inspirational and motivational principles: welcoming young and old, encouraging a love of Bible reading and flexibly planning ahead under God’s guidance through widening our vision for his people in this place.

We are looking for a passionate and energetic vicar who will recognise gifts in others and encourage them to use them for God’s purposes and lead teams of volunteers to reach out to all ages and grow St Michael’s in the community.  We want a vicar who will lead us to a deeper love of God and His Son, Jesus Christ.

We are offering you a warm, welcoming and growing congregation who will support you both in prayer and practical aspects. We love to be actively involved in church services and events within and outside the church walls. We have a highly experienced PCC and team of Lay Readers, Church Wardens, Pastoral Assistant and Parish Administrator. We will be flexible in how you organise your week and know you need to take holidays and time off. 
This is a part-time post without housing provided and is equivalent to 3 days + Sundays.

Team Rector of St Luke in the City and Priest in Charge of Toxteth St Margaret

Serving a vibrant, growing and rapidly changing part of Liverpool city centre, this is a fabulous place to live and work. 

This newly configured post holds together the three existing churches of the St Luke in the City team with a new partner church, St Margaret of Antioch, representing a new collaborative way of  working. The Team Parish of St Luke in the City was one of the earliest experiments in creating a  larger single parish, when five historic parishes came together 25 years ago. Now the Deanery has embarked on the journey of exploring pastoral reorganisation to become a single larger parish under  the diocesan strategy Fit for Mission. It is expected that the postholder will be committed to this journey, and should be aware that this post may change to that of Team Vicar in a reconfigured larger parish in a 2-3 year timescale (all clergy currently in post will have the opportunity to explore  becoming Team Rector of the new parish). It will be important for the postholder to be willing to work in partnership with people of goodwill of all faiths and none as the churches serve their communities.

Community & Engagement Worker - St Helens Parish Church

St Helens is a large town with a strong cultural identity, loads of potential and in a great position in the North West of England. The town centre is in the early stages of an ambitious programme of regeneration (, and the church’s central location is at the heart of the imagined ‘new’ town centre.  As the civic church in the town, St Helens Parish Church already has an active ministry with the council and town wide events.  As St Helens Minister, a vision is emerging of how we can build on these links and strengthen the mission and ministry here as the Church in the centre of St Helens. 

An important part of the vision for St Helens Minster is that the building would be open more for visitors, groups and those seeking help or connection. We already have a successful weekly community café and our vision is to build on its success and develop a unique offering of hospitality and welcome within the minster.  The Community Engagement worker will work alongside the Core team to develop the Christian vision of St Helens Minster, working to make Jesus known through strategic community engagement, working with existing ministries of St Helen’s Parish Church and developing new initiatives to share the good news of Jesus.
