North Hartismere with Redgrave, Botesdale & the Rickinghalls are a new and exciting combination of 7 parishes, with 10 churches, in the lovely countryside of North Suffolk. We are looking for a Priest-in-Charge with the skills to help us grow together into a fully united benefice. Our vision is not just to grow in number, but to reach out into the community with the gospel so that all may develop a closer relationship with God, and we would love our new priest to help us make our vision a reality.

We are praying for someone who:

  • is enthusiastic about engaging with the joys and challenges of rural ministry
  • is willing to lead, support and encourage a wide range of prayer and worship
  • will lead and encourage us in serving our communities.

We offer:

  • prayerful and practical support and participation in worship, welcome and service
  • supportive ministry colleagues, locally and within the deanery
  • a detached modern 5 bedroom rectory.
