Priest in Charge, St Leonard, Hythe

Hythe is a seaside town with much history, a wide range of people, resources - and challenges. The parish reflects this with its own history, dedicated team of lay people and desire to minister to the town in a way that is relevant to today. The parish has a strong choral and eucharistic tradition which provides a solid foundation to explore additional ways of mission. The PCC is outward looking and open to new initiatives and there are many opportunities to work in partnership with others in the town and more widely.
