Whats happening about a vicar?


In November 2013 the benefice interviewed a vicar to take up our vacant post.  The parish
representatives meet Paul, he was offered the job, sadly before Paul could take up the job he passed away suddenly.
On the 28th March 2014 the benefice interviewed 2 potential candidates for the job of vicar.  One of the candidates called Adam was found to be most suitable — unfortunately when offered the job after the interview Adam declined the post as he felt the job move was not right for him at this point in his life.
A new date has been set for July 4th 2014 to interview potential candidates once again.  Lets hope we have some applicants
It looks as though we will be without a vicar until at least October 2014
Thank you to all those who are taking on the responsibility of opening our churches for Sunday services , you are all doing a great job
Please all pray for the benefice and that a suitable candidate will come forward on July 4th 2014 and we will find a vicar soon

Please come a long , you would be made very welcome or ring Mandy on 01964 626115 if you feel you could help us.
