Priest in Charge (half time) to the Parish of St James, Riding Mill
We are looking for someone who will flourish in the beautiful rural setting of Northumberland’s Tyne Valley. Riding Mill is a vibrant parish which has a vision for growth as it develops its existing relationship with the local community, the vision for the flourishing of the wider Deanery, connections with the wider world and the sustain of the people of God on their journey in God’s love. We have responded confidently to the opportunities and challenges of the Coronavirus pandemic and keen to explore what these tell us about God’s vision for the church here.
This is an invitation to join both the parish of Riding Mill and the Diocese of Newcastle on their journeys. If you are someone of spiritual depth who can inspire others to connect strongly with God; someone who can work collaboratively as an effective communicator, and who can enable existing skills, talents and resources to reach out beyond the safe and familiar, then we hope you might apply for the details and explore the possibilities.
