We are seeking a Vicar to help us discover God’s vision for how we can live Christ’s story in this new season of our church life. We desire to grow in discipleship and deepen our unity so that we can reach those beyond our church walls.

Our new Vicar will enjoy a varied ministry and purposefully engage with our diverse community including civic engagements. They will have a heart for the gospel and sharing it with others – both enabling us to evangelise and modelling it in their life and ministry. We are looking for a Vicar who will:

  • Help us to seek vision and lead us into growth
  • Enable and equip us to reach families and younger generations
  • Value scripture and its teaching
  • Actively engage with our diverse congregation and community
  • Deepen our discipleship, growing our faith and expressions of ministry
  • Embrace the partnership working with the Rainbow Social Action Centre

We don’t expect our Vicar to do everything and we wouldn’t want to appoint someone who feels that they must. We work well as a team, with committed wardens, lay and ordained colleagues and a parish administrator. We will pray for you, support you practically and enjoy sharing in ministry with you.

You will find us in the beautiful coastal town of Scarborough.  We are praying for you, excited about our future and look forward to meeting you.
