As Covid-19 restrictions begin to ease, the recruitment process for clerical posts in the diocese will gradually resume. Archdeacons will be in touch with vacant parishes when it is possible to take the next steps.

We are also willing to resume placing advertisements for admin/support related parish vacancies where there is a need identified for these.

“Whatever you’re interested in, there’s a place for you in Lichfield Diocese.”

Welcome to one of the most diverse dioceses in the country. Rolling countryside and vibrant inner city life nestle together in a region that takes in Staffordshire, the Potteries of Stoke-on-Trent, most of Shropshire and bustling Black Country centres including Walsall and Wolverhampton. The only thing we don’t have is the sea!

It’s the two million people from a multitude of backgrounds and cultures who live in here that make all the difference. “We don’t need to go into the world, the world has come to us!” remarks one vicar.  “People love you in spectacular ways,” says another.

Lichfield Diocese is known for its innovative and cutting-edge approach to ministry, with a have-a-go attitude that encourages clergy to experiment and pioneer new paths as we together discover where God is at work.
