The search is on as a group of Norfolk churches looks to bring on board a new rector.
Following the departure of canon reverend Sally Theakston, Dereham and District Team Ministry Benefice has begun searching for a replacement to fill the position of team rector.
As a Crown appointment, the Lord Chancellor must be involved with the selection process.
Helen Dimmock, head of church appointments and ecclesiastical secretary to the Lord Chancellor, joined members of the benefice for a 'get to know you' event.
