Praying and Planning through the Vacancy

The time after one vicar leaves and before another is certainly challenging, but can also be a great time of opportunity. People can take up new responsibilities and develop new skills. And it can also be a time of real growth for the whole congregation precisely because all of us are taking responsibility together for being the church in this place.

Already the clergy team, the centre staff, the churchwardens and the PCC are developing plans for the months ahead - and please pray for all of them in this important work.
At the bottom of this page you can download a series of documents about the whole process. The first - "Appointing your New Vicar" - is the standard diocesan document. "Growing through a vacancy" is a very helpful resource produced by the Chuch Pastoral Aida Society, which the PCC are using as a reference point. "Preparing for the coming months" & "What happens in a Vacancy" are both taken from recent editions of Grapevine. And the Vacancy Timetable is adapted from the CPAS booklet.
