This is a new post held in two parts: Team Vicar covering the parishes of Shipdham and Bradenham and Schools’ Worker/Chaplain, within the Dereham & District Team Ministry, in the centre of Norfolk. This post has been created by the Diocese to under-pin our mission focus and a commitment of the Diocese to invest resources in this benefice. The Benefice comprises seven parishes (eight churches) in the centre of Norfolk and is served by a Team Rector and two Team Vicars. There are 13 schools across the benefice, including two secondary schools. Some of these schools have little or no church connection at present. We are hoping for a witness to the life and death of Jesus, a priest who is be able to testify that the Lord is good with a life that is shaped by the teaching of Jesus and a deep sense of call. If you are this person, and you model attractive faith in a relational way, we would be glad to meet with you.
We seek a person who is able to embrace the breadth of churchmanship within the congregations.
