    The Bishop of Chichester seeks an energetic, personable and mission-minded priest for this beautiful, rural East Sussex benefice of three churches within two principal communities, forming a single parish (one PCC).

The parish is blessed with supportive congregations, a lay minister, a reader and the assistance of retired clergy and has two good Church of England Schools. 

     A priest is sought who:

    •  is of central/eucharistic churchmanship, sensitive, accommodating and flexible and willing to respect the traditions of each church;
    •  is a person of prayer, vision and compassion, committed to teaching and preaching the Gospel 
    • will be an enthusiastic leader, able to inspire and encourage lay participation and training,
