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

Firstly a big thank you to all of you who were involved in one way or another over the 2 days of interviews. Your actions, feedback, comments, observations and prayers were much appreciated.

Jane and Ian felt the 2 days went well and provided a helpful range of experiences both for us and also the 3 candidates. Feedback from the panel members and the candidates was very positive. Throughout the interviews the 5 of us on the panel were of one mind as to the recommendations for appointment of each our 3 candidates.

Unfortunately on this occasion no appointment has been made.

We do believe that this is the right decision for all parties. We continue to trust in our Lord and Master who knows best for us and as we have stated from the beginning we are IN HIS HANDS.

Ian and Jane will meet with the Trust in the next 2 weeks to discuss the right way forward. Please do continue to pray for the right person to lead us.rward. Please do continue to pray for the right person to lead us.
