St Mary’s is currently looking for a new priest to build on our strong foundations, and guide our active and enthusiastic community.

Update on appointing the next Vicar

We are pleased to be able to let you know that the advert for the next Vicar of Whitkirk has been published.

This advert is supported by a parish profile and brochure, both of which you are welcome to view below. Our thanks to all those involved in the hard work that has gone in to their production. 

The advert will be live for around a month, following which there will be a shortlisting process, and interviews with candidates will be held in early May. The PCC has nominated Janet Blenkinsop and Adam Kelly as our parish representatives on the interview panel. They will be joined by representatives of the Bishop and our Patron, The Society for the Maintenance of the Faith. 

We will keep you informed of any major developments and ask for your continued prayers as the process moves forward.
