Staff Appointment Update

The meeting last Sunday afternoon took a different turn following the late withdrawal of the application by Revd Dr Andrew Hartropp for the Team Vicar post, but was a very positive meeting in which Stephen, together with the Archdeacon and Rural Dean, outlined other possible ways forward in the future ministry of the Team, including the possibilities of appointing a ‘house for duty’ priest and/or a lay member of staff such a youth worked or parish nurse. The discussions will be taken back to individual PCCs before the Team Council meets again to plan the way forward, so do talk to your churchwardens or other representatives for more information.
