Winlaton, St Paul and Ryton Holy Cross

This is an exciting opportunity to work in these forward thinking and lively parishes. We are looking for a priest-in-charge who will help us to build on what has already been achieved, enable the parishes to meet the adventures ahead and move to the next phase of the journey.

We would love our new priest-in-charge to be an essential part of our family, be a person of strong personal faith with the skills to be a leader as well as a collaborative team player; someone who is able to nurture, motivate and affirm the talents and contributions of others.

We are ready to go forward into the future and are excited about having a new priest to journey with us.
