Ministry in the Diocese of York

The Diocese of York takes in much of North and East Yorkshire, including the cities of York and Hull, the towns of Middlesbrough and Selby, and two National Parks.  Extending from the River Tees to the River Humber, and from around the A1 road to the incomparable Yorkshire coast, the area is home to around 1.4 million people.

We are a family of 607 churches and 125 schools in 470 parishes, led and guided in their faith and work by the Archbishop of York, Dr John Sentamu.  York Minster is our principal church.  Our vision is to be a family of Generous Churches Making and Nurturing Disciples. We are currently working through a Diocesan Strategy that focuses on:

- Reaching those we currently don't

- Moving to Growth

- Achieving sustainable finances

We currently have a number of interesting opportunities for clergy looking for a new challenge.  From urban and semi-urban parishes, seaside towns to rural parishes, could there be something that is calling you?
