Vacancy for New Rector

We’re looking for a Rector with clean wellies to inspire and guide us in God’s work amidst the best of East Devon’s coast & countryside. We work as a caring and co-operative team, with five parishes at the heart of community life – Branscombe, Colyton with Colyford, Musbury, Northleigh and Southleigh.

Please click here for the Mission Community profile.

We’re seeking a priest to strengthen our Mission Community, bringing a Christian faith that is evident, grounded and capable of inspiring others. We anticipate an affection for many worship styles and an appreciation of quality in liturgy and music. We hope for a natural warmth, with openness, diplomacy and tact. We expect him or her to have collaborative leadership skills and experience in nurturing teams. We in turn can offer great lay, clergy and administrative support, a children & families worker, and cake at the drop of a hat.

Retreat Day – “Silence Speaks”

St Lawrence’s Southleigh

Sat 13 April, 10.00 – 3.30: a Retreat Day in the beautiful setting of Southleigh Church.

Join us for a day of personal reflection through a selection of contemplative activities. Inspired by ‘The Book of Joy’ by the Dalai Lama and Desmond Tutu, in which they share their experience and practice of Buddhism and Christianity; yet inclusive to people of all faiths and none.

‘When we were quiet our hearts discovered that they were kindred spirits’.

To book please contact Hetty Kothari or Helen Miller 01297 639002 or at silencespeaks81@gmail.com. No charge, donations to cover cost welcome, tea and coffee provided, please bring packed lunch.
