St Andrew's Leyland is looking for a new senior vicar.
We are a large and active church (ER 415) who are seeking to love Jesus, love God's Word and share the gospel with our community in Lancashire.
Leyland is a small town in Lancashire located in the South Ribble Borough.
From its rural origins, the main growth of the town came in the early 1900s with the development of Leyland Trucks, alongside a traditional weaving industry and a large rubber manufacturing plant.
We are a reformed, conservative evangelical church which encourages a personal relationship with God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit and, flowing from this, loving relationships with one another. In everything we do we seek to sit under God’s inerrant Word as revealed to us in the Bible. With that in mind, our vision is to Reach out with the gospel, Grow up in the gospel and Send out for the gospel.
St Andrew’s is blessed with a dedicated staff team who oversee many areas of ministry and enable the church family to serve within and beyond our regular worship.
We have two associate vicars (Duncan Bell and Matt Cook) who share the oversight of key ministry areas. Duncan oversees our 11.15 a.m. congregation and has oversight of discipleship. Matt oversees the 9.45 a.m. congregation and heads up our children's and youth work. Together with them, the team comprises a Children’s Worker (Katy Turner), an Office Administrator (Janet Sutherland), a part-time PA to the vicar (Sarah Stables), and a Youth Ministry Trainee (Alex Wood). As a team we’re quite new – all staff members, bar Sarah, have been on staff for less than two years. The staff team are excited are excited about the future and are looking forward to our new leader joining us!
