The Bishop of Leicester is seeking to appoint a Rector to the Fenn Lanes Benefice. We are a rural setting of five villages, located in the south-west of Leicestershire, on the border with Warwickshire.

  • will encourage, inspire and empower us to develop our spiritual gifts and ministries.
  • is supportive of our endeavors to bring our communities together for a variety of social events - within and outside the church.
  • is keen to work with children and young people.
  • will embrace the Diocesan Shaped by God Together process and Minster Communities.
  • will guide us through the changing landscape of parish ministry.
