Team Rector

of Bexhill




South East


Ref: JN009169

Job Description

The Bexhill Team Ministry includes two churches. St Peter’s (Grade II* listed, ER 222) is the ancient and civic parish church of Bexhill, founded in 772. St Michael’s (ER 85) was built in 1930 and is a smaller community-oriented church, serving the expanding suburb of Pebsham. St Peter’s is situated in the picturesque environment of the Old Town, within a short distance of the town centre and seaside, but the parish also contains areas of considerable deprivation. The tradition could be described as ‘moderate catholic’ but includes people from a wide range of backgrounds. There is a strong choral tradition at St Peter’s, and children’s work is undertaken at both churches.


We can offer:

  • Excellent reach into the local community, with many opportunities for mission.
  • Outstanding two-form entry Voluntary Aided Primary School with strong links to the church.
  • Considerable resources, including church hall facilities at both churches.
  • A capable team of lay leadership
  • A Team Vicar based at St Michael’s – this appointment will be made by the new Team Rector in conjunction with the Bishop. The post is currently designated as House for Duty.

We are seeking a Team Rector who will:

  • Be a priest who will help us ‘to know Christ and make him known’ (our parish strapline)
  • Develop mission and evangelism within Bexhill.
  • Be a collaborative, transparent and inclusive leader
  • Promote Christian teaching, nurture and worship.
  • Have organisational and administrative skills.

Parish Profile available from Marc Sacher or on diocesan website.


Please contact the Venerable Dr Edward Dowler, Archdeacon of Hastings, if you would like to have an informal conversation about this post:
