Following the retirement of Reverend Anthony Dickson on 26th May 2024, all the regular service slots have been filled by covering clergy during the next three months.
The Benefice Office is moving out of Nunney Rectory for about a year while the house is renovated and until a new incumbent is appointed. The temporary office will be in Delamere House, Frome Road, Nunney BA11 4LG and the phone number will be 07404 824355.
A team of people – lay and ordained – will provide continuity of care and spiritual support during the period of vacancy. Our administrator, Claire, or any of the churchwardens can help you contact the right person.
The PCCs of Postlebury, Leigh on Mendip with Downhead and Stoke St Michael will be embarking on the process of recruiting a new incumbent. As part of that process, our congregations and our communities will be consulted about their views of the role our churches could play in their communities and more. We will be reaching out to you for your views.
