Office Holder
House for Duty

The Bishop of Chichester seeks to appoint a House for Duty priest for this benefice of three beautiful rural parishes on the South Downs near Burgess Hill and Hassocks.

We offer:

· Supportive congregations committed to ‘share the load’ as active members of the PCC, School Governors, village, Deanery and Diocesan leadership.

· A creative Outreach and Worship Team who lead a range of activities for fundraising and community mission throughout the year.

· A growing community full of opportunity, with primary and secondary schools

· A welcoming and collaborative Deanery within the Diocese of Chichester, where our vision is ‘to know, love and follow Jesus.’

We are praying for:

  • A Priest with energy and compassion who brings flexibility and imagination to spiritual leadership
  • Someone organised and experienced enough to make the dynamics of “house for duty” work well, using all the assistance and support that is available.
  • A priest who will harness the gifts of our strong core of church members and guide us in our mission to reach our communities with the gospel
  • Someone who will enjoy community life and engaging with our schools
