Annual Sung Mass

Posted on the 25th Jul 2018 in the category Events





Vacant Parish S Luke Prittlewell

Posted on the 17th Jul 2018 in the category Vacancies



Priest in Charge of St Luke, Prittlewell

Location: Southend-on-Sea

St Luke’s is a welcoming, diverse, and open-hearted church in the Anglo-Catholic tradition. It. receives pastoral and sacramental ministry from the Bishop of Richborough. A Sung Mass is celebrated at all principal Sunday services and a Spoken Mass during the week at various times. There is also a monthly Rosary prayer, monthly modern prayer, Benediction, and a weekly Bible reading group.

 

Over the last decade St Luke’s congregation has grown both in numbers and in its type of ministries, becoming a large church family. Every generation is represented. A high number of children attend and take part in church life alongside other parishioners of all ages. This is a growing church which actively engages young people, encourages the use of lay people in the development of the church, and has a clear mission and purpose to enhance the lives of all the parishioners.

 

St. Luke’s centre is a large, newly refurbished-and-extended building adjacent to the church. It is used by one thousand people each week, and is key to the pastoral mission of St. Luke’s, in terms, both of service to the community and outreach.

"Ours is a parish of extremes. We have been blessed with a close and active community, an excellent church and centre, and a commitment to the mission of the Church. However we live in a parish with high levels of deprivation, with parishioners in need of spiritual healing, and with the responsibility to continue and build on the extensive work we already do."

We are looking for a parish priest who will lead with vision for a community that has the church as its beating heart, whilst building upon the significant valuable work that has been established for the benefit of all.

  • Someone who pushes for growth in the church, in the faith of each parishioner, and in our various community projects.
  • Someone who is missional in works to put the Gospel into action and who seeks to include all people in church life, responding to the pastoral needs of congregation and community.

With God’s help, we will achieve our goals by praying together, by continuing open and directed discussion about our objectives, and by working together with our future vicar who shares our vision and our strong sense of purpose.

 

Interviews will be held all day Monday 1st October (candidates could come on the afternoon of Sunday 30th September to look round the parish, if applicable)

 

A role description for this post will be uploaded shortly.
