Our two parishes serve the town of Sandwich and village of Worth on the east Kent coast have a combined and growing population of about 8,000. On the retirement of our previous Rector, we are ready to build on the ministry we currently exercise and revitalise it for today's society.
Sandwich provides a local hub for Worth and the other rural villages in the area. There are good transport links into Kent, London and the Continent.
We will actively support your development of:
- A revitalised pastoral outreach
- The depth and quality of our worship
- Enlightened Christian education in our churches, communities and schools
- Sustainable and generous stewardship of creation in our churches and neighbourhoods
- Open engagement with our church neighbours, the deanery and diocese.
Your personal catholic commitment affirms the ministry of all, projects your faith and is an enabling collaborative leadership of open-minded vision and imagination.
