Rector of the Benefice of Lockington and Lund and Scorborough with Leconfield

(House for Duty post)

Our benefice of four rural churches is situated in a glorious part of the East Riding of Yorkshire just a few miles north of the very attractive Georgian town of Beverley.

A quote from our local church school –

‘A great place to be – come and join us!’

We offer:

· Enthusiastic, welcoming and friendly churches

· A real desire to grow and reach out to our families

· Inclusive, central tradition of worship

· Very good lay support including three Authorised Lay Ministers (two Worship & one Pastoral)

· An attractive 4-bedroom rectory in Lockington

· Two excellent schools with which there are close links – a church primary school in Lockington and a community primary school in Leconfield

· Big skies countryside of the Yorkshire Wolds and the North York Moors

We are praying for a Rector who:

· Will be an encouraging, prayerful and visible pastoral presence within our caring and active village communities

· Has a genuine desire to communicate and connect joyfully with people of all ages

· Will continue to nurture and enhance our good relationships with our local schools

· Can recognise and use the skills of the laity across our benefice

· Wants to lead us to joyfully proclaim the gospel in our communities

We understand rural life and don’t expect our Vicar to do everything – we have active church members who look forward to sharing in ministry with you!
