Deanery House for Duty Priests

in South Holderness

We are seeking two bold adventurers to help us re-imagine our deanery and how we do mission and ministry here. Our deanery plan is proposing radical changes and a creative experiment in rural ministry. As part of this, a Ministry Team of lay and ordained Ministers, including two new House for Duty priests, will lead ministry across our rural parishes. The Priests will work across the rural parishes, sharing in the different patterns of worship, traditions and life of a whole range of communities. They will be freed from specific responsibilities for particular parishes.

We don’t have a perfect person spec in mind, as the role can be partly shaped around the individuals, with scope to pursue a specialism that supports our ministry. We are looking for prayerful and collaborative colleagues who will join with us in creatively re-imagining rural ministry here. We need people who are listening to Christ’s call, “Follow me”.

Our friendly and re-envisioned Deanery is handy for the coast, the Wolds and the vibrant City of Hull. Four bedroom houses in pleasant villages are offered, or a 0.2 stipend could be paid in lieu of housing provision.

Informal enquiries are welcome. Please contact:
