Team Rector of Netherton and Sefton Team Ministry

We are looking for an enthusiastic Team Rector who will be sensitive to the contexts and needs of both parishes, in terms of mission, worship and demographic.

We are offering you a supportive and welcoming church community who will respect your time off and the need to care for your own wellbeing and that of your family.  We commit to working with you, to being open to new ways of working and helping to provide the resources you need.

Team Rector of St Luke in the City and Priest in Charge of Toxteth St Margaret

Serving a vibrant, growing and rapidly changing part of Liverpool city centre, this is a fabulous place to live and work. 

This newly configured post holds together the three existing churches of the St Luke in the City team with a new partner church, St Margaret of Antioch, representing a new collaborative way of  working. The Team Parish of St Luke in the City was one of the earliest experiments in creating a  larger single parish, when five historic parishes came together 25 years ago. Now the Deanery has embarked on the journey of exploring pastoral reorganisation to become a single larger parish under  the diocesan strategy Fit for Mission. It is expected that the postholder will be committed to this journey, and should be aware that this post may change to that of Team Vicar in a reconfigured larger parish in a 2-3 year timescale (all clergy currently in post will have the opportunity to explore  becoming Team Rector of the new parish). It will be important for the postholder to be willing to work in partnership with people of goodwill of all faiths and none as the churches serve their communities.

School Vacancies

School Chaplain - Lowton Church of England High School

This position represents an excellent opportunity for an inspiring person to be our Chaplain.

The Chaplain has a unique role in our school in being part of school life but also deliberately not seen as a ‘teacher’. The school Chaplain is an important adult role model for both students and staff. They play the lead role in preparing and leading worship for students and staff, running clubs for students and leading spiritual reflection in school.

Our Christian mission sits at the heart of our curriculum. We are looking for our next Chaplain to work with us to further develop our Christian ethos, support our young people and help us deliver our social action agenda.

Our school is deeply rooted in its Christian values, which palpably define the culture of the school. We do not select by any faith designation as part of our admissions criteria. We are very clear that we are a mission-led school serving Jesus Christ through our school community.

You will be employed by the school and the bulk of your work would be in our school, but the reach of your role extends beyond the school gates to build close relationships in local schools and churches, and national organisations reflecting our social action agenda.
