Picture yourself in one of the most diverse regions in England.
From the hustle and bustle of two thriving cities, magnificent northern industrial towns, the Fylde Coast and Morecambe Bay, to the calm tranquil rural parishes, Lancashire and the North West has everything.
If you’re called to work with extremely deprived communities, suburban parishes or wealthier areas you will find God has a position for you.
When you come to Lancashire, you will find the best of everything: excellent sport, fine cultural attractions, a scenic coastline, dramatic countryside, and great schools.
Please read this letter from our bishop, have a look at our vacancies (below) to see what opportunities there are for you to step out in a new direction and read our guide to the appointments process (February 2021)
