NOTE: Currently this opportunity is only available to clergy already serving within the Diocese of York.

Thank you for your interest in the post of parish priest for Marton-in-Cleveland with Easterside. This is a post for a priest who is ready to build on good work already begun, and lead a Christian community into an exciting new phase of its life and mission.

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: 9.00 am on Tuesday 5 January 2021

Interview date: Wednesday 13 January 2021
