Can you lead our Christian community into an exciting new phase of our life and mission? We are looking for a parish priest for the Benefice of Marton-in-Cleveland with Easterside who is ready to build on good work already begun.

Marton is a community much older than industrial Middlesbrough, where James Cook was baptized. It comprises old and new housing and retains a distinctive identity. The parish also includes the residential area of Coulby Newham, where there is a Multiply Minister. A scheme has been drafted to demolish the 1960s church of St Agnes, which is beyond practical repair, and to re-unite Easterside parish with Marton.

Please consider this opportunity if you believe you are called to a mission of encouragement and leadership at a time of change and opportunity. For an informal discussion, please contact the Area Dean Fr Charles Razzall, the Archdeacon of Cleveland the Ven Dr Amanda Bloor, and/or the Bishop of Whitby the Rt Revd Paul Ferguson (full contact details are in attached document).

Further information can be found in the attached Parish Profile and Role Description. An application form can be obtained from Mandy Robinson, PA to the Bishop of Whitby (available from 30 November).

Deadline for applications: 09:00am on Thursday 4th March 2021

Interview date: Friday 19th March 2021

We welcome applications for this particular post from all from eligible clergy. It is subject to a satisfactory Enhanced DBS Disclosure, up-to-date Safeguarding training, and bishop’s reference
