Our search for a new vicar – where are we now?

Since Bron moved on to pastures new last October, much of what went on in the parish – services, church and community groups – has continued unchanged and we have even managed to initiate one additional service each month for our younger members. This is largely down to the efforts of just about everyone involved in church life putting in that little bit extra to ensure that our worship and outreach continues to thrive. We are particularly indebted to our ‘guest’ clergy for ensuring that we can continue to offer Holy Communion and other services as part of our rota. Behind the scenes, the PCC and the Parish Profile Working Group have been working to gather information on which to base our Parish Profile, essentially a marketing project to attract the kind of vicar who is most suited to address the current needs and future vision of the Parish. We hope to publish the Profile in March and advertise the position soon after. If all goes well, we would hope to appoint in the early summer and the new vicar would be place by September.

If you haven’t already done so, there is still time to complete a short questionnaire about what you are looking for and what you (and your community) could offer to the successful candidate (click here).
