Transforming the communities of Essex & East London through Christ’s presence

Priest in Charge of Collier Row Ascension and Priest in Charge of Marks Gate St Mark

Location: Marks Gate, St Mark and Collier Row, Ascension

Priest in Charge of St Marks, Marks Gate and Priest in Charge of The Ascension, Collier Row.

Location: Marks Gate and Collier Row

Marks Gate and Collier Row are two neighbouring communities in East London and we are seeking to appoint a priest who will serve as Priest in Charge to both parishes.

The Ascension, Collier Row is close to the main shopping area in the community and provides a wide range of liturgy and ministry with a particular interest in the development of work amongst young people and families. It has tried to celebrate and develop a Catholic approach to liturgy and mission and the growing community of lay people has built a highly collaborative way of working. 

St Mark’s, Marksgate is of a more diverse tradition and is a warm and welcoming community located in the Chadwell Heath Ward of the London Borough of Barking and Dagenham. It has recently been redeveloped as a site to provide liturgical, missional and community facilities for a strong local community and there is a fantastic opportunity for the development of innovative mission and liturgy.

The Priest in Charge will live in the vicarage at the Ascension, Collier Row, which is being renovated prior to the appointment.

Closing Date: 13th July 2020

Familiarisation Day:   22nd July 2020          Interviews: 23rd July 2020
