Vicar, St Peter Monkseaton

The Bishop of Newcastle wishes to appoint a Vicar to the parish of St Peter, Monkseaton.

‘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. St Peter’s is a forward-looking parish well placed to play a significant part in developing and supporting new opportunities in God’s mission. 

This is an excellent opportunity to lead and serve a growing parish church set in an attractive suburb on the coast not far from the city of Newcastle upon Tyne. St Peter’s has a strong Eucharistic tradition, a willingness to engage with different forms of worship, a lively sense of shared ministry and team work, and a desire to build on good relationships and partnerships in the community.

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, outward-looking thinker, 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 with the mission of the deanery, and will be expected to bring energy, commitment and imagination to this, as well as enabling St Peter’s to grow in faith, hope and community.
