The Diocese of York


The parishes of Easington w Skeffling, Keyingham, Ottringham,

Patrington, Welwick and Winestead

Come and join us in this little known corner of East Yorkshire! Our group of six parishes combines tranquil rural settings with the Spurn Heritage Coast and Humber Estuary, and we have six glorious church buildings in the midst of it all. We are seeking someone who will prioritise ministering in our communities and will enjoy having a public presence in each of our villages. We are looking for a joyful and enthusiastic Minister who will :

  • Bring vison and leadership, working with the benefice team to realise this
  • Lead us in mission as we seek to grow numerically
  • Grow our confidence to reach out to our communities
  • Pray for us, and with us, developing our spiritual life
  • Work as a pastor to all in the community and in the churches

We understand rural life and don’t expect our Vicar to do everything. We have an established pattern of working together as one Benefice and an able lay leadership who will share in ministry and the running of our churches. We long to see our Minister set free to work beyond the churches and will do our part to make this happen.
