It has been decided to postpone Confirmation Classes until the vacancy is filled due to the increased workload they would entail.
News about the Vacancy
There has been a long break when many people in the Diocese have been viewing our advert and reading our Parish Profile, with little feedback to us. However it has been agreed that we will be advertising in September in the Church Times and the interviews will be in October. There is a suitable incumbent out there and the Bishops and Archdeacons will encourage prospective candidates to apply as well as those who see the advert and would like to move to the South of England as a good geographical move and a career opportunity.
If all this goes well we could be appointing in October with the possibility of someone starting in the New Year. Please continue to pray for the right person to apply, be interviewed and accept the position.
We may well begin to see potential candidates coming to services in September, so please welcome any newcomers as you always do, mindful that the stranger in our midst may well be viewing us in the light of becoming our new incumbent.
