Job Description

Is God calling you this role?


We are the coastal resort town of Aldeburgh with its civic church and known for its world-famous annual music and arts festival, and three smaller village parishes near
the beautiful Suffolk coast. Our worship is eucharistically focused and also open to contemporary-style services.


We are praying for someone who:


  • Is confident in their faith, sensitive to the Holy Spirit, flexible and approachable
  • Can bring our congregations together while respecting our diversity
  • Will exercise a wise oversight role yet also be an enabling team player
  • Can inspire and encourage us in our discipleship and nurture lay and ordained vocations
  • Will engage with our communities in mission, especially as we seek to ‘grow younger’.

We offer an active ministry team of PTO and SSM clergy and lay elders, a modern four-bedroom house, part-time administrator, working expenses paid and a commitment to ensuring you take time for holidays and retreats.
