Vicar to the Parish of Cowgate St Peter & Priest in Charge Newbiggin Hall

‘Behold, I am doing a new thing…’ (Isaiah 43.19)

Newcastle Diocese is seeking to respond to God’s call by developing new patterns and partnerships for mission and ministry and this post is building capacity for renewed mission in an area of significant deprivation. This is an excellent opportunity to lead and serve the renewal of mission across two outer estate parishes in the modern catholic tradition, looking to build on small but faithful worshipping communities and existing links with local community development initiatives to be part of growing a transforming church presence in these parishes. 

The role is ideal if you are someone ready for a strategic challenge and willing to seek fresh vision for God’s mission in the world, are attentive to the Spirit’s activity in our communities, can lead others in confident partnerships, and can nurture inspiring and imaginative worship where all are welcome.

As the new vicar, you will be a creative thinker and outward looking, with the ability to build relationships, develop teams and discern mission opportunities. You will be a good teacher and pastor encouraging and inspiring all in prayer, discipleship and understanding of God’s word. You will lead the parish in active collaboration across parish boundaries as part of the diocesan vision of growing church bringing hope.
