Team Vicar and Associate Priest

The Blyth Valley Team Ministry and the benefice of Heveningham with Ubbeston, Huntingfield and Cookley

We are two benefices of rural churches centred around the thriving market town of Halesworth in beautiful NE Suffolk. We have one shared vision: to be “Church in Community and Community in Church”.

Will you come and play your part in helping us to realise our vision?

We are praying for a priest who

  • Will lead and inspire our new “Church in Community” working group and has a passion for challenging injustice
  • Can take particular responsibility for a small cluster of parishes
  • Values our gently liberal, inclusive catholic tradition focused around the Eucharist
  • Is a team player, encouraging, enabling and resourcing people to use their skills and ideas
  • Has a pastoral, prayerful heart, nurturing and caring for all people and our environment

There is an active lay and ordained ministry team, supportive PCCs and a good four-bedroom house. Expenses are paid in full.

For an informal chat contact Ven Jeanette Gosney, Archdeacon of Suffolk, 07710 479497, .

Closing date: 28 November Visits/interviews: 8/9 December
