Could you be our next Vicar?

Ingleby Barwick is an exciting place to be. There has been excellent strategic leadership during the time of its last incumbent, and scope for the parish - the largest by population in the archdeaconry of Cleveland - to move on further.

We are a diverse and inclusive community of all ages, gathering from all walks of life, growing together in fellowship, friendship, and service. Worship is at the heart of our shared life or prayer and witness, with sacraments as a core element. Though we are living in unusual times, we are still a church and worship, discipleship and service are still at the heart of what we do. There are so many in the congregation who want to deepen their faith and that is very encouraging.

If you come as our next vicar, you will find able lay leadership, a strong ethos of spiritual formation among worshippers, and potential to explore developments for the future.
