Caister-on-Sea, Diocese of Norwich

The Society for the Maintenance of the Faith wishes to appoint a Rector to this single-parish benefice, serving a lively coastal village community with a population of over 9,000 five miles north of Great Yarmouth, with four schools and good public transport links with the surrounding area.


The person appointed will ideally be:

  • a priest able to facilitate welcoming, inclusive worship and lead the church into numerical and spiritual growth, while remaining firmly rooted in the eucharistic tradition of the parish
  • a prayerful pastor with good inter-personal and communication skills, able to provide stimulating and challenging preaching
  •  an enabler and encourager of the vocations and ministries of others, helping to broaden the base of active and financially committed church members and willing to encourage lay participation in liturgy and pastoral care
  • someone willing to be a highly visible presence, committed to building on the strong relationships already fostered with the schools, uniformed youth organisations and many community groups in the parish

To request an application form please contact the General Secretary
