It is the agreed policy of the House of Bishops that newly ordained ministers should serve at least three years in a training post before taking on a post of incumbent status.
You will find our policy and guidance for dioceses below:
Appointment of curates
Formation and assessment in curacy
As ordinands come to the end of their theology course, their next step is to seek a title post through which they can be ordained deacon. They will then complete their training as curates in this post.
Detailed descriptions of title posts are circulated by theological colleges and courses for the benefit of ordinands. Contact your college principal or director of ordinands for more information.
For ordinands seeking a title post in a different diocese, this page acts a noticeboard of vacant positions. Click on the headings below for more information. Please use the contact details provided with each advert for more information on the post and how to apply.
St George’s is an evangelical charismatic Anglican church, with links to New Wine. Strategically located in the centre of Leeds, the church has an average Sunday attendance of 475 adults, 45 children, and a further 80 adults at Lighthouse. Led by Rev Lizzy Woolf, St George’s vision is for Sharing Life, Loving Leeds by preaching Jesus, making disciples, serving the city and sending out leaders.
As the new Planting Curate you will join a dynamic and supportive team, with the opportunity to develop leadership, teaching and pastoral skills as you build a team and prepare to church plant. The expectation is that you will go on to lead this new church plant after your curacy.
