Diocese of Durham

The Acting Bishop of Durham is looking to appoint a Priest-in-charge of St John’s Birtley and St Andrew’s Lamesley.

“Come and follow in the footsteps of Aidan, Cuthbert and Bede”

This is an exciting opportunity to come and serve in a new grouping who are looking forward to working together in mission..

Nestling under the shadow of the Angel of the North, these parishes are ideally suited to a mission minded priest who can lead with enthusiasm and vision with a willing group of parishioners.

We are looking to appoint someone who will lead these small but growing congregations who are ready to grow further– could God be calling you here?
