A Message from the Dean, The Very Rev'd Reuben Preston

The work of the Vestries with Bishop Kevin has now taken us through stage 1 and stage 2 of the interview processes and yielded the result of the Post of Priest-in-Charge for 3 years being offered to a priest who has now formally accepted the post. This is good news and the work of the Vestries has been consistently diligent throughout the process. At this stage the PVG clearance process is being initiated and the identity of the new priest will be announced in due course when the necessary checks have been satisfactorily completed. Please pray for the Vestries as they get ready for the announcement in the coming weeks and finish off the preparations in the Rectory for the new priest to move into with their other household members. This is the start of the next chapter in the mission and ministry of the two charges.
