We are seeking an experienced priest who will work with the PCC to encourage spiritual and numerical growth in both the traditional eucharistic congregation and in gather! - a fresh expression of church.
It is essential that the new Vicar is able to inspire and encourage this ‘mixed economy’ - each has the potential for further development. Both have an important part to play in the future of Holy Trinity and further work is needed to enable both to support each other and utilise the latent gifts of their members in the service of Christ.
Meanwood CE Primary School was judged to be outstanding in their last Ofsted inspection. A significant number of parents attend Holy Trinity with their children in the hope of securing a place at the school for the child. There is scope for the church to do more to welcome and nurture these adults and children. Good church-school links have been fostered in recent years.
Holy Trinity is in a strong financial position and the PCC have recently refurbished the Church Hall to a high standard. There is scope for considering the employment of staff (say, for Youth/Children’s work).
Meanwood has become an increasingly popular place to live in Leeds, attracting young professional and families. In the east part of the parish there is considerable economic and social deprivation. It is a place where creative Anglican ministry can continue to grow, and flourish with good collaborative leadership.”
