HOUSE FOR DUTY PRIEST

Walpole St Peter with St Andrew and West Walton

Both Walpole St Peter and West Walton churches feature in Simon Jenkins Top 100 churches and receive a large number of visitors - they are stunning buildings.  Although the buildings are significant, it is the welcome and the fellowship of the communities which makes this such an attractive post.  The existing supportive congregations are Anglo-Catholic/middle Anglican in style and both churches have good regular congregations.

One key aspect of these parishes is the excellent relationships with local schools (five of them).  They are looking for a priest who is willing to visit the schools and thereby, to help grow the congregations at both churches.

The parishes are between Wisbech and Kings Lynn.  The post is enhanced by the support of a resident LLM.

For an informal conversation please contact The Archdeacon of Huntingdon & Wisbech The Venerable Hugh McCurdy archdeacon.handw@elydiocese.org
