As you will know from last week’s edition the PCCs of BCI have taken the decision to part ways with Rowlands Castle and to have a Part Time Stipendiary priest to serve BCI.
This week the Archdeacon took the PCCs through the procedures both of a vacancy and also through how an appointment was to be made. As a result, a Parish/Benefice profile will now have to be drafted and written by a small group on behalf of the PCCs. The Archdeacon also underlined that Churchwardens were responsible for the smooth running of the Benefice with the support of clergy.
Please pray for all our Churchwardens, volunteers and PCC members as they begin this latest phase of our journey together.
