Incumbent for the Parish of Christ Church Anglican,

North Bay

The Bishop of Algoma is seeking to appoint an Incumbent for Christ Church Anglican, North Bay. It is a full-time position and includes a housing allowance.

In 2014, after much prayer and discussion, the people of Christ Church stepped out in faith and purchased a new building on Greenwood Avenue (North Bay) to accommodate their growing needs.  2017 will mark the 60th anniversary of the parish.

The congregation would welcome a new Incumbent who is willing to work, educate and train them in new areas, as they grow in their journey of faith together.

Situated on the shores of beautiful Lake Nipissing, North Bay is less than a four-hour drive from Toronto and boasts an airport served by Air Canada and Porter Airlines, Nipissing University and Canadore College, a military base, and a symphony orchestra. With a population nearing 55,000, it is the fourth-largest urban centre in the diocese.

A parish profile can be found here. Should you wish further information about the diocese, please visit our website.

Those desiring to apply for this position are asked to submit their applications to Bishop Anne Germond. Please ensure that you provide the following information with your application:

  • The names and contact information for three references. As a matter of courtesy and due diligence, we will be contacting the existing or former bishops of those who have been short-listed.

You will be notified to confirm that we have received your application but regret that we cannot provide information on the status of your application while the process is underway. We would ask you not to contact the parish directly. You will be informed when an appointment has been made.

Incumbent for the Parish of Marathon/Schreiber

The Bishop of Algoma is seeking to appoint an Incumbent for the combined Parish of Marathon/Schreiber. The parish is a two-point parish comprised of Trinity Church (Marathon) and St. John the Evangelist (Schreiber).  The churches are one hour driving distance apart.  They are located along the scenic North Shore corridor of Lake Superior between Sault Ste. Marie and Thunder Bay. 

The Town of Marathon is a vibrant community with a population of 4000 that offers a unique quality of life.  It is a hub of activity surrounded by boreal forests and amazing scenery.  There are a full range of medical, educational, and leisure services and opportunities.  It has a vibrant industry and business community, supported by the Hemlo Gold Mines and by small, medium, and large-sized businesses.

The Township of Schreiber is currently home to 1200 residents.  It is located in a valley surrounded by rugged hills and on one of the most northerly points of Lake Superior.  It offers a variety of services and activities.  Many of the parishioners of St. John’s are residents of Schreiber and the nearby Township of Terrace Bay which lies 14 kilometers west.

The City of Thunder Bay, population 110,000, is two hours away.  It offers a myriad of services including post-secondary education at Lakehead University and Confederation College.  An international airport serves the city as well as several regional airlines.

The rectory for the combined parish is located right next to St. John’s in Schreiber.  The past model of ministry was to have the Incumbent at St. John’s three Sundays a month and once a month at Trinity as well as one day a week for pastoral/office work in Marathon. This is subject to change depending on the needs of the congregations and communities.

These two churches are considered to be mission churches within the Diocese of Algoma and are subsidized by the Diocese to ensure an Anglican presence is maintained along the North Shore.  Their parishioners are small in numbers but mighty in their commitment and dedication.  They are seeking a leader who can help them grow and reach further into their communities; assist them in their spiritual growth; help them discern what they are called to do within their churches and communities; and re-engage with some of their flock that are not attending regularly.  They are open to new approaches and ideas and are willing to work alongside their new Incumbent to develop ministry initiatives.
