Posted on: Thursday 5 October 2023


Nar Valley Group of Parishes is looking for a new Rector.

Castle Acre, Narborough with Narford, Pentney, West Acre, South Acre and Newton by Castle Acre

‘To know Christ better and to make him known’

The Bishop of Norwich seeks a Rector for six modern eucharistic parishes in a beautiful part of Norfolk with:

  • Well maintained buildings
  • Congregations used to worshipping together with generosity and understanding
  • Two church schools
  • A benefice administrator and office
  • A newly refurbished rectory with self-contained study/ office space.

This is a gem of a role for a prayerful priest rooted in word and sacrament. You will rejoice in the place of the church in the heart of the village communities and celebrate the importance of occasional offices. But you will also delight in developing creative ways to share the gospel anew, deepening the faith of the current congregation and enabling new people to come to Christ.

Closing date: 9:00 am Monday 6 November 2023

Interviews: Thursday 30 November 2023
