"The United Benefice of Hunstanton St. Mary with Ringstead Parva St. Andrew,
Holme-next-the-Sea St. Mary the Virgin and Thornham All Saints,
with Brancaster St. Mary the Virgin, with Burnham Deepdale St. Mary
and Titchwell St. Mary, with Choseley",
which is the official name of this Benefice, is rather a mouthful and so the name
"The Saxon Shore Benefice"
was chosen for these churches on the north west Norfolk coast.
In her fifth year of serving as the Rector of the Saxon Shore Benefice the Rev. Susan
Bowden-Pickstock has recently moved on. Her post here finished at the end of January 2019.
Susan is going to start a course of study, an MA in Christian theology, mission and ministry on a part time basis. This will enable her in the long term to develop her skills in teaching and training within the Church of England.
Alongside this course of study Susan has been appointed House for Duty Associate Priest in the benefice of Harston, Hauxton and Newton in South Cambridgeshire. Her licensing will be on the 24th February 2019 at All Saints, Harston.
We wish her well in all her future endeavours and ministries.
All of the parishes comprising the Saxon Shore Benefice are now in a period of interregnum pending the appointment of a new encumbent.
