Job Description

This benefice of about 3500 people consists of two parishes in beautiful South Northamptonshire, with easy access to London, Birmingham and Oxford.


The parishes are in the Peterborough Diocese with episcopal oversight provided by the Bishop of Richborough. King’s Sutton PCC has passed a resolution under the House of Bishops’ Declaration, which has recently been reaffirmed.


Under Regulation 29(7D) of the Ecclesiastical Offices (Terms of Service) Regulations 2009 the benefice is seeking an Interim Incumbent for an initial period of three years to help equip the parishes for growth and effective mission. There is a good record of parish share payment and there are many opportunities to build strong foundations within the church family with creative links into the vibrant local communities. The archdeacon welcomes conversations before applications.


We are seeking an incumbent who will

  • engage with the wider communities with openness and creativity
  • nurture relationships with the local schools
  • be open and welcoming to children, families and young people
  • cherish the musical tradition of King’s Sutton
  • value the past whilst looking to the future
  • appreciate the differences in churchmanship across the benefice
  • be a pastor and peacemaker within the church family and beyond
  • be a visible people person in these villages
  • use the next three years to grow the churches, building a solid base for future ministry

Could this be you? If so, we would love to hear from you.
