Another Interesting Vacancy

With little time and so much to do at the moment, I'll keep the pot on 'simmer' with another job vacancy someone has asked me to point out.

A post in the Western Lake District has come up, in the delightful village of Gosforth.  It includes a number of surrounding villages, but the ministry would be based in Gosforth, rather than a 'jump in the car' kind of ministry.  There are some evangelicals working together, with a number of vacancies meaning the area can be reshaped in the coming year.  The advert is here  and if you know someone who may wish to apply, please have them be in touch. It would be a suitable incumbency for someone who is finishing a curacy, or for someone more established in the ministry.  They should have a pair of walking boots and a canoe, because Gosforth is in the Lake District National Park...

Please give a full name and location when posting. Comments without this information may be deleted. Recommend:


  1. "The Parishes, a good part of which are located within the Lake District National Park, contain Britain's highest mountain, deepest lake..."

    That stops short of the full story - "... the smallest church and the biggest liar, but he's dead."

    Avtually the smallest church isn't at Gosforth but at Wasdale.

    1. Right you are, Steve! The parish includes Wasdale, a hamlet with some one hundred souls.

  2. So high church then?
