What happens with appointing a new vicar, as Dave retired at the end of November?

The PCC had a very positive, helpful and constructive meeting with both the diocese and the Trustees last week. As a result, we can share with the church family the approximate time frame for what we hope will be happening over the coming months.

January and February - Production of our church Profile.
March - Position advertised in appropriate newspapers and websites April - Shortlisting of candidates.
May - Candidates visit the parish and meet the PCC. Interviews take place, Offer of position.
September - Our new vicar starts with us at St Mary's
Please do pray for us as we journey with our Heavenly Father through this process. As we have always said, it is IN HIS HANDS.
