Statement from Ven Simon Heathfield, Archdeacon of Aston
“Thank you to everyone who helped organise the discernment process last week as we continue our search for the next vicar. The Patronage Board and the Bishop are continuing to work through the process with the candidate who came for interview. This involves various checks and issues before a formal announcement can be made. Please continue to pray for that work and listen out for further news.”
Thank you to everyone who attended the evening event on Thursday and for the feedback which we received. Thank you to Isabel and Vicki for leading on the catering arrangements for Thursday and Friday, all of which ran very smoothly, and to the people who supported by providing food and also helping on Thursday throughout the day.
They were tough days for the candidate and his wife—and us! We now have to wait for the ‘checks and issues’ to be resolved, after which we will be able to make a ‘formal announcement’.
Eric and Margaret—Parish Reps
