The Church of England churches in Bicester are looking for a new Rector to head the Bicester team.


Work has begun to find a new Rector in Bicester, following the departure of the previous incumbent, Revd Canon Verena Breed, to become Archdeacon of Barnstaple.

The new Rector will also be Vicar of St Edburg’s Church in the town centre.


To choose a new rector an open consultation meeting will be held on Saturday November 27 between 9.30am and 12.30pm at St Edburg’s Church.


All are welcome to take part, particularly children and their families, and there will be age-appropriate activities.


Adrian Balshaw Church Warden said “This consultation will help us sense where we are, and what God might be saying to us at St Edburg’s Church, the Church of England churches and parishes that make up the Bicester Team and, the wider community of Bicester and the surrounding villages. We hope many people will take part.”


Those wishing to attend are asked to email by Friday November 26.
