We are looking for a leader with the skill and passion to shape and implement our vision to create a framework for missional growth and administrative efficiency in our area. This is a vision in which rural ministry is thriving and all who serve are equipped, trained and empowered. Ultimately, we will be a benefice of nine parishes, creating a great opportunity for a leader to reshape how we do things. We need someone special. Is this you?
Plans are in place to merge the Draycote benefice with the adjoining Leam Valley benefice. Both are currently in vacancy and we are seeking a new leader together.
The new Draycote benefice profile is available below. It contains updates from the Leam Valley churches, whose full profile from 2018 is also linked.
The Draycote Benefice
In the Diocese of Coventry, at the heart of Warwickshire, the Draycote Benefice comprises four rural parishes with four churches, at the heart of each village.
- All Saints’ in Stretton on Dunsmore with Princethorpe
- St. Leonard’s in Birdingbury
- St. Nicholas’ in Frankton
- St. Peter’s in Bourton on Dunsmore with Draycote
The Leam Valley Benefice
The Leam Valley benefice comprises four small villages with five churches. We reflect in many respects the joys and challenges of many small rural multi-parish benefices.
- St Mark’s in Flecknoe
- St Peter’s in Grandborough
- All Saints’ in Leamington Hastings (with Church of the Good Shepherd, Broadwell)
- St Nicholas in Willoughby
