Nottingham St George – Priest-in-Charge
St George’s is a parish which stands in the Catholic tradition of the Church of England, which has passed a resolution in accordance with the House of Bishops’ Declaration on the Ministry of Bishops and Priests, requesting alternative Episcopal, sacramental and pastoral care. The Bishop of Southwell and Nottingham has invited the Bishop of Beverley, who is also an Assistant Bishop in the Diocese of Southwell and Nottingham to provide this care. St George’s is affiliated to The Society of St Wilfrid and St Hilda. For many years the parish was served by Kelham Fathers and Brothers, and more recently by SSC priests.
The parish is situated in The Meadows, an inner city area of Nottingham near the River Trent and close to the centre of the City.
This new full time appointment recognises the many opportunities for growth in our diverse multi-cultural community with a strikingly young population, 61% at the last census being aged between 15 and 44, with 88% under 60.
We are seeking and praying for a missional Priest and Leader who will:
- Lead our people in Catholic worship with appropriate flexibility
- Nurture our Catholic faith, deepening our discipleship and sacramental life
- have a passion for our young parish community, enabling us to reconnect and grow new disciples
- be a networker, building relationships with partner churches and the wider community
- have a heart for the disadvantaged while helping us to show the love of God in word and deed to all
