A TOWN is still searching for a priest-in-charge after more than a year.

Four churches in Millom still require an ordained minister after the position became vacant last summer.

The position covers Holy Trinity Church, St George's, St Anne's, and Haverigg's St Luke's Church.

Reverend Carl Carter, of Haverigg, stated the position has been vacant since June 2018.

The position has been advertised in the Church Times at great cost, but there was only one applicant.

The benefice safeguarding officer position is also vacant.
