Church to expand work with big grant

St John the Evangelist in Goole is to recruit new staff and create new congregations.

Six jobs are being created at an East Yorkshire church to expand its work.

Goole St John is benefiting from a share-out of 3 and a half million pounds by the Diocese of Sheffield to develop new congregations.

The posts, which include clergy workers,  a children's worker and a worship leader, will be filled by July.

Meanwhile, the church needs to appoint a priest-in-charge to manage the team. St John's has been without a vicar for two years.
