Team Rector and Team Vicar of the Diss Team Ministry

Posted on: Wednesday 8 May 2024


Life in rural South Norfolk brings God’s creation to your door in all its glory. 

We are looking for collaborative priests, confident in their love of God, who can lead and encourage our Team of churches to grow and develop their mission to everyone in the communities they serve.  

There are two posts available – for a Team Rector and for a Team Vicar, who will work closely together to serve the needs of all the parishes.  This could suit a clergy couple who wish to share their ministry. 

WE ARE LOOKING FOR the priests who will help us achieve our Vision by:

 • lively preaching and teaching, relevant to daily life
 • being comfortable with Prayer Book and Common Worship
 • praying, with us and for us
 • encouraging and developing pastoral care across the team
 • understanding the challenges of both town and rural settings, including the upkeep of ancient buildings
 • growing and encouraging links with families, schools and young people
 • helping us to engage with the wider communities, sharing your own gifts
 • working with us as we seek the best way forward for our benefice
 • looking with fresh eyes to discern how we might do some things better while perhaps letting others go
 • being ready to learn from others, having fun and enjoying the company of others

Closing date: 11:59 pm Thursday 6 June 2024

Interviews: Monday 1 July 2024
