Could you lead us in our combined benefices in a beautiful area of North Yorkshire countryside?

We are seeking a PRIEST IN CHARGE for two combined benefices in the area between Pickering and Scarborough in the wonderful North Yorkshire countryside.

With a strong active ministry team including Deacon and self-supporting Priest along with retired clergy, we have a strong desire to minister within the community, our local C of E schools and growing our relationship with Wydale Hall, the Diocesan Retreat House situated in Upper Derwent.

This is a combined appointment of the parish priest of two benefices, part of a plan to develop ministry in the eastern part of the Northern Ryedale deanery. At the same time, we are appointing a priest to the adjacent Pickering Benefice and we would hope to explore the possibility of increasing cooperation between the clergy in these communities to make the most of individual's gifts and interests and moderating workloads.
