This is a newly shaped role with a real focus on mission in our rural communities on the Suffolk coast near Ipswich and we are excited by it!

Your focus will be the Hollesley cluster of churches, with active support from the wider benefice. We are being supported by Lightwave, the diocesan-wide rural mission-focussed community. Will you join us?

Do you:

  • place prayer at the heart of your ministry?
  • have a desire to focus in your work on leading young people’s and families’ mission?
  • have a passion for making new disciples and an ability to nurture small missional groups?
  • enjoy working as part of a team?
  • have sympathy and support for the natural environment in a rural area?

You will find a good four-bedroomed clergy house, benefice administrator and hard-working PCC.

Is God calling you to this role?
