Blaydon St Cuthbert, High Spen St Patrick & Rowlands Gill St Barnabas

We are looking for a new Priest in Charge who is prayerful and who will work with this outward-facing group of parishes. These parishes are socially aware and ready to move on in mission and evangelism. Three different churches, but one solitary vision – to serve the people of God in these communities.

We are a mixture of town based and rural yet united in Christ. Good ecumenical and deanery links are guaranteed as are capable & enthusiastic laypeople and a non-stipendiary colleague.

Is God calling you to the North East – we’d like to explore that calling with you!

  • Closing Date: 12 noon on 13th November 2020
  • Interviews: 23rd November 2020

For more information or an informal conversation, please contact Revd Tom Brazier, Area Dean of Gateshead West on 07799 217775
