Located in the beautiful East Sussex coastal region, the historic town of Battle is looking for a new Dean to serve, equip and lead this busy town centre parish.
St Mary’s Church is located in the centre of town, with a small daughter church in nearby Telham. The tradition of both churches is central, with a broadly evangelical ethos.
The parish has strong links with local schools, including a Church of England (2fe) primary school, other local churches and town organisations.
The Deanery is centrally located within easy walking distance of the town, local schools and amenities with a large garden and ample parking.
We are looking for a biblically orthodox priest with vision and enthusiasm. S/he will be able to nurture and encourage both the traditional and modern forms of worship and to build up our strong civic links and outreach in the community.
