MOVING FORWARD TOGETHER
The next milestone in the trek towards a Deanery Plan and thus for the recruitment of clergy for our own Benefice and the Parish of Poughill, will be discussion and presentation of some alternative ideas for re-organising the Deanery that have been received before the 31st July deadline.
This could be done during extra PCC Meetings but it is suggested that our United Benefice Council and Deanery Reps (if different) from each parish should meet for this in mid August so that as little disruption as possible will be experienced during the holiday season. We will then be in a position to report back to our church communities and the Reps will be able to be well informed in order to take part in the vote to choose the Deanery Plan which will take place at the Deanery Synod on 11th September.
The August meeting will depend upon the College’s own discussions so we cannot propose a date just yet, but it is obviously vital that we are as involved as possible in these discus-sions and decisions, so please, even if it means changing your plans, try your best to attend if asked. Thank you
