In consultation with the Bishop of Dover, the Lord Chancellor is seeking to appoint a Rector for the Saxon Shoreline Benefice.
Overlooking the Romney Marsh and six miles from Ashford, this rural benefice comprises thriving villages and hamlets, served by eight churches in seven parishes. These range from traditional Book of Common Prayer through 'middle of the road' to one church which is more informal and evangelical in its style. All of our churches wish to serve God and their community and hope to do this in closer cooperation. Our priority is to promote the Christian faith and grow the Church and we would like to explore with our new Rector how to do this, with new ideas as well as those things we are doing now.
If you would like to make an informal visit to the benefice, there'll be people available to show you round on 5 and 6 September. Please contact the Archdeacon of Ashford's PA (details below) for more information or to book a visit.
Closing date: 8 September 2022
Interviews: 26 September 2022
