Process for appointing a new Rector
The Diocese has now given the green light to advertise for a Priest-in-Charge for the Benefice and the advert for the post is here.
Part of the process involved the Benefice producing a parish profile which is our shop window. It is a detailed document giving information to potential candidates on, amongst other things, the local context, the congregation, mission, buildings, the finances, the future, the deanery and the Diocese. It aims to be really clear in saying to potential applicants who we are and what we offer. The Benefice profile was written by a group of 10 people from each of our three parishes. It can be downloaded here.
Please continue to pray that suitable applicants will apply for the post and that we can make an appointment after the interviews which are scheduled for the end of January 2022.
Our church is open daily from around 9.30am – 4.00pm for private prayer and visitors. We are delighted to welcome people back to Axbridge Church!
