Brave enough for a rural challenge? Lover of BCP? Steam enthusiast? Seeking the riches of village life?
What more could you want?!
A charming Sussex village, despite its quasi-ribbon development – 3 miles long and 50yds wide, with an exquisite 14th C church set out in the fields, an inviting pub named ‘The Laughing Fish’ and the Lavender Line steam railway, friendly natives and keen and supportive church community – all these attractions are on offer to the right priest, who will relish Gospel preaching and pastoral ministry, will have a heart for mission and a willingness to be drawn into the fullness of community life.
This could be the post for YOU!

Organist/Choir master required for the Parish Church of St Mary the Virgin, East Preston, nr Littlehampton, West Sussex.
Sadly our present organist has moved away upon his marriage and wishes to leave us as the travelling will be too much.
We have one service at 10.00am on a Sunday with a very enthusiastic choir plus one choir practice a week. There are also sung services on some of the bigger festivals and also in the run up to Christmas we have Sunday afternoon services.
We also have a deputy organist who is happy to play on the odd occasion. Fees are as per the RSCM for a small church plus fees for the occasional services like weddings and funerals.
