Good morning to you all, well at least it’s not raining this morning! Though it is going to get colder with some sleet forecast tomorrow. So hope this finds you all well, as we are here at The Rectory.
Curate Some exciting news! In our last PCC’s I mentioned that we have been asked to have a curate for three years, from Petertide 2021. Having met the ordinand, and spent 5 hours together, along with further input from the diocese, we all feel that The Benefice is the right place for this person. I will be making the announcement on Sunday in our service, and will give you all further details in Monday’s briefing; but this is really exciting and recognition of what the Benefice can offer for training. You will recall that in 2019 we had an ordinand Ylva with us for three months, along with Isobel, reader in training and both said how much they enjoyed their placements and how much they got from their involvement in the life of the Benefice. The diocese offers on-going training for a curate in terms of academic study, and Training Incumbents also receive training, again overseen by the diocese. So tune in on Sunday and you will find out who will be joining us!
