We seek a new minister who will walk with us in leading our parishes in the next stage of our mission and ministry.

St Cuthbert’s is a historic church in the centre of Darlington with an important civic role; it has excellent traditional music, dedicated lay leaders, and an ambitious reordering programme. Holy Trinity, on the edge of the town centre, is a warm, welcoming parish church, poised for new growth.

This is a very exciting opportunity to serve two great churches, both determined to grow. Are you the skilled, collaborative leader who can help the congregations build on their strengths and explore new possibilities in mission and ministry?

For more information or an informal conversation, please contact: Archdeacon of Auckland, The Venerable Rick Simpson on 01325 480444 archdeacon.of.auckland@durham.anglican.org

  • Closing date: 15th December 2020
  • Interviews: 12th January 2021
