Fakenham’s new rector is officially installed

Rev Tracy Jessop has been officially installed as Rector for Fakenham during a service at Fakenham Parish Church on Tuesday September 27, fourteen months after their last reverend retired.

The church has been without an official rector since the departure of Francis Mason, who left the role in July 2021, with retired and guest clergy taking services ever since. The Reverend Tracy Jessop has now been instituted, inducted and installed as the new Rector of Fakenham, as well as Priest in Charge of Christ Church in nearby Fulmodeston.   

At the service, Revd Jessop was joined by her partner, Dee, as well as the Bishop of Lynn,  the Right Revd Jane Steen, the Archdeacon of Lynn, the Ven Sally Theakston and Fakenham’s Rural Dean, Revd Clive Wylie.


Born in London, Revd Jessop had a career of almost 30 years in local government, including in Norfolk from 2002. She trained part-time for ministry with The Eastern Region Ministry Course whilst continuing to work at Norfolk County Council from 2011 to 2018. She was ordained in 2019 and served in curacy posts across Wroxham, Hoveton, Tunstead and Belaugh before joining the Aylsham and District Team in September 2020.


Revd Jessop’s first service was on Sunday, October 2, followed by a community bring and share lunch in the church.
