Deadline: 19 Jun 2017, noon
Interview: 19 Jul 2017
Following the Five Guiding Principles of the House of Bishops Declaration regarding mutual flourishing, this post seeks to help, particularly catholic parishes, to focus on strategies and delivery plans that will foster growth in the Five Marks of Mission and support initiatives for deepening discipleship, spiritual growth, evangelization and engaging with the local community.

A key task will be to build relationships with catholic parishes, initially in the Deaneries of Oldham East and West, supporting them in their mission and building bridges between Society and other catholic parishes.


The post-holder will therefore


  • be a Society priest, confident in their own faith and respectful of the wider traditions in the Church of England.
  • have proven experience in seeing churches of a catholic tradition grow in number, in spiritual health, and in community engagement.
  • have proven experience in working with the wider Church of England structures, whether at deanery or diocesan level.
