Bishop John is delighted to announce that

Revd Simon Bray

has been appointed as the new priest-in-charge of the parishes of St Chad's, St Clement's and St Andrew's Bishopthorpe.

Simon will join us from his current position as

the Archbishop's Domestic Chaplain.

This marks the next stage in the emerging partnership

between the three churches.

Bishop John writes that Simon

'brings pastoral, preaching, administrative, leadership and musical gifts to the role. Above all he is passionate about local mission which is committed to realising our diocesan vision of living Christ's story by becoming more like Christ, reaching those we currently don't, growing churches of missionary disciples and transforming our finances and structures.'

Simon has said

'These are parishes I know and love, and I am looking forward to getting to know the three churches too, and to seeing how God will lead us in sharing his love and living Christ's story in our communities. Please pray for Nicola, the boys and I as we prepare to make the transition from my current role to this new adventure; I will be praying for all of us, that as we begin this new partnership God will give us faith, vision, and love for each other.'

Our current priest, John Day, will continue to work in the parishes,

alongside Simon, in his current part-time capacity. He remains a member of the Archbishop's staff team.

We await news and dates for a Licensing service and Simon starting as the new full-time priest amongst us.

About St Chad's

We are a friendly, inclusive and welcoming church in the South Bank area of York (near York racecourse and the former Terry's Chocolate Factory).


Our church life is centred around worship and prayer, as well as finding ways we can serve God and our local community. We aim to be a place of hospitality, compassion and outreach as we help each other grow as disciples of Jesus and spread the Good News of God’s love.

We are members of the Church of England and part of the inclusive church network that seeks to welcome everyone, without discrimination, in the name of Jesus.

We are currently exploring a new partnership with the churches of St Clements on Scarcroft Road and St Andrew's in Bishopthorpe. We are looking at how we can best work together to serve the people of South Bank and Bishopthorpe.
