Norwich Cathedral – a beacon of faith and hope at the heart of the county of Norfolk and Diocese of Norwich – is seeking its new Dean.

We seek someone who is a gifted preacher and teacher, experienced in nurturing worshipping communities and sharing the good news of the Gospel.

We seek someone with a heart for the Anglican choral tradition, but also an innovative leader in mission. Someone who is gifted in building partnerships, who will keep the Cathedral looking outwards, embracing the social Gospel and striving for a prophetic edge.
