The End in Sight...?
On Tuesday, May 2nd, we were informed by the Appointments Secretary of the Diocese of Liverpool that the advertisement for the vacant position of priest-in-charge of the United Benefice of St Faith's and St Mary's has been placed on the diocesan and national church websites and in the Church Times.
See the basic advert below, expanded for legibility. The diocesan website carries this and several pages of supporting material, including the all-important parish profiles for our two churches (no longer including Christ Church and St John's profiles), statements from the bishop and area dean and more. To access these click
and go to the panel of links to the right. There is a lot of statutory 'bumf' to be encountered, but it is worth working though it! The less patient will find most of interest in the first three Downloads links:
'Bishop's Statement', 'Parish Profile' and 'Role Description'
The deadline for applications is 9th June - the day after another, possibly less important, national event, with interviews set for 19th June. God willing, next month could see an end to the protracted and often stressful uncertainties of recent years. Our prayers are asked as we enter this challenging and exciting time.
