Wardens Update on the Appointment Process

St John's ChurchDear friends,

Now that we are in an interregnum, we thought it would be helpful to give the St John’s church family an idea of the anticipated timetable with respect to the appointment of a new incumbent. This has been arrived at in discussion with the Church Representatives, the New Appointment Group and Dick Farr of the Church Society, our Patron. The details are as follows.

An advertisement will be placed in The Church Times and online within the next two weeks. The closing date for applications for the post of Vicar is expected to be Monday 7th December. Shortlisting will take place in December 2015, and it is expected that interviews will take place in the New Year. Hopefully this process will lead to the successful applicant moving to Harborne during the summer, ready to take up the post of our Vicar in September 2016. We hasten to add that this is a proposed timescale and may be subject to change.

We continue to ask for your prayers for all aspects of this important appointment. We are looking to God for direction, clarity, blessing, the smooth running of the whole process and a real sense of His hand taking us forward at this time. More than anything else, we pray that God will lead us to the person that He has chosen to be our Vicar; in this new chapter of the life of our church.

The Parish Profile has been prepared for use in the appointment process. The replies from the recent Church survey have been taken into account when compiling this document.

The Parish Profile is available to view online through the Weekly Roundup. If you do not have internet access you can request a copy from the Church Office.

With our prayers and blessings,
