It has been a long process and it looks like we are at the end of the begining! The advert for our new incumbant has gone on the diocese website and will go into the Church Times next week. We hope and pray that the person God is calling to serve with us sees this and is complelled to answer.
The whole process has been an enjoyable one in that it has made us as a mission Community come together and pool resources that we did not do so well in the past. The laity have stepped up and taken on roles which we never had done before. This has given us hope that we can continue to serve with joy until the right clergy person comes.
We must thank Dr Peter Smith who has chaired the steering committee and who without we would have been lost.
So we ask everyone to pray for the mission community in this continued time of interregnum and we hope that it will be at end soon.
