Priest In Charge
St Herbert, Darlington
(House for Duty basis)

After four years of vacancy, we now have the opportunity to appoint a Priest in Charge on a House for Duty basis. We seek a minister enthusiastic to help us develop our gifts, grow our congregation and reach out in our parish. While we have a traditional worship style, we are praying for a priest who will be inclusive of all ages, views and traditions.

You will work within a warm, welcoming community of faith, with loyal, dedicated volunteers. We have sustained our worship well through the vacancy; we are now praying for a minister who will enable us to develop our ability to engage with our parish in mission.

  • Closing Date: 10th February 2021
  • Interviews: 1st March 2021
