April 2018 – Process of appointing a new vicar
Alistair (and Pippa) have now moved on to the Parish of the Risen Lord located in the New Hall Lane area of Preston.
The Parochial Church Council (PCC) have met with Archdeacon Mark, Area Dean Marc Wolverson and the parish patrons: Rev David Gibb (Vicar of St Andrews) and a representative of the Church Pastoral Aid Society (CPAS) to start the process of appointing a new vicar.
The next steps are to a) select two members of the PCC to be the parish representatives working with the Diocesan Bishop, Archdeacon, Area Dean and patrons to advertise, interview and appoint a new vicar and b) for the PCC to write a ‘parish profile’ that describes our church and those who are involved with the wide range of activities that we have, as well as the wider parish, and the sort of person that we are looking for to lead us in to the 2020’s.
