Vacancy — Local Pastor

Although many current activities are suspended because of the Covid-19 pandemic, and the future shape of the Church in the 'new normal' is far from clear, the York Circuit is undergoing an exciting piece of strategic development. As part of this the Circuit Council is seeking to appoint a Local Pastor to provide pastoral oversight, initially at Heworth Methodist Church but with involvement at some other Churches within the Circuit. The post holder should be prepared to relocate within the Circuit as required after the initial period.

The role will cover all the main aspects of local ministry and leadership. Pastoral duties will include home and hospital visits and attendance at pastoral meetings. The successful applicant will also be required to lead worship and other devotional gatherings as well as regularly attending worship at Heworth Methodist Church in York. In addition, the jobholder will facilitate Church members in developing and running mission initiatives. There may be some requirements to attend meetings as the Ministry Team representative.

This is a permanent full time post of 37 working hours over a five day week. Some flexibility in working hours will be required due to the nature of this post and the opportunities which may arise from the work.

Salary: Between £19,875 — £25,820 depending on experience

If any interested parties would like to request an informal meeting ahead of the application process please contact Revd Keith Albans.

An application pack is available to download from this page, or contact the Circuit Office: admin@yorkmethodist.org.uk

Closing Date for Applications: Friday 10th July

Interviews to take place (probably via video conference) 16th/17th July.
