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.
The meeting and lunch was an opportunity for Ms Dimmock to assess the suitability of applicants as the lengthy selection process gets under way.
Meanwhile, on Saturday September 14 at 7.30pm St Nicholas Church at Dereham has its annual celebrity organ recital called Fanfares, Reflections and Fantastias.
Celebrity organist is James Parsons, founder of the Oundle International Organ Week which hosts aspiring organists.
