Rector : The Benefice of Bansfield

Is God Calling You To West Suffolk?

We are looking for someone to help our seven churches grow into vibrant, vital, hearts of our communities.

Your ideas, energy and commitment will be supported enthusiastically by the Benefice Ministry Team, committed PCCs and friendly congregations.

Set amid the beautiful, undulating Suffolk countryside, we trust you will find further inspiration in our buildings, some of which date back to the 11th century! They are all completely managed by the PCCs, freeing you to lead us in mission and worship.

Let us focus on the buildings and you on the people.

With Cambridge, Bury St Edmunds and Newmarket only short distances away, the 4-bedroom rectory is based in Wickhambrook, recorded in The Doomsday Book as “Wicham”. The village now boasts a primary school (rated outstanding by Ofsted), bus service, surgery, Post Office, village shop and gastro pub.

A warm welcome awaits you.
