    Priest in Charge (St Mary’s, Walney & St John’s, Barrow Island) and Evangelism Enabler (Barrow Mission Community)

    Do you want to minister amongst 'salt of the earth' people in two distinct communities, as together we seek to be 'salt and light' for Christ?

    Can you build upon good foundations and continue to help us provide welcoming community, meaningful worship, and accessible Bible teaching that grows lay disciples?

    Do you want to grow new forms of church - with a passion for mission and discipleship - but in a place where roots go deep and tradition is precious?

    Will you hold out Christ as grace amongst the grit, as hope for the hurting,and as true satisfaction to those unsure as to what they are seeking?

    Barrow Mission Community is looking for an innovative Priest-in-Charge for two parishes in the uniquely coastal and urban Deanery of Barrow. St Mary's, Walney Island, and St John's, Barrow Island, together serve around 15,000 people in Barrow-in-Furness, south-west Cumbria.

    Combined with the town-wide role of Evangelism Enabler, this is an exciting and imaginative role, enmeshing traditional parish ministry and the opportunity to be a team-player that helps others explore new missional ventures.
