Team Rector and Team Vicar of Egremont

We are looking for a new Team Rector and Team Vicar, on one and a half stipends. We would be prepared to consider a husband and wife "team".

There is the possibility of an additional post as  part time Hospital Chaplain; the role is currently under review, so a conversation with the Archdeacon would be the appropriate next step.

Egremont is an historic market town situated between the World Heritage Site of the Lake District National Park and England’s ‘Energy Coast’.  Its economy and community (pop. 9,000) were shaped significantly by mining associated with West Cumbrian iron and steel production. More recently it has become closely linked with the nuclear industry.  The area continues to include significant farming.

The clergy appointed will oversee the parish church at Egremont, a daughter church at Bigrigg, the parish church at Haile, and a mission church at Thornhill.
They will be part of the Central Calder Mission Community with recently appointed fulltime colleagues at St Bees, and Cleator Moor, and a more longstanding house for duty (ecumenical) colleague at Ennerdale.

The Benefice offers
• an established Christian presence in a supportive community
• a hospitable rectory, and well-regarded schools, on the doorstep of stunning mountain and coastal landscapes

The Benefice seeks two clergy who
• will bring vision and vocation to encouraging mission engagement
• are both leader and ‘team player’; friendly, sociable and approachable
• will encourage lay Christians to develop their gifts
• are at home in, and enjoy, both urban and rural communities.

If you are interested, please phone the Archdeacon, Richard Pratt, on 01900 66190
