During the period of the sabbatical of our Rector, the Reverend Anne Charlton, the Venerable Dr Trevor Jones, who was until recently Archdeacon of Hertford in the St Albans Diocese and who now lives at Lympstone, will have pastoral oversight of the Mission Community. He will be supporting the churchwardens of the parishes who are in charge during the absence of the incumbent. You can find his contact details here.
Only one application has been received, so the post will be advertised in the Church Times on 10th and 17th March, with a new interview date of Wednesday 26th April. In the meantime the Archdeacon has informed us that they are letting the Vicarage in Budleigh Salterton for six months.
Bishop Sarah will be licencing Annita to the Sidmouth Team at Sidmouth Parish Church on Sunday 26th February at 6pm and will be a Eucharist. You are all are very welcome to join the service and there will be refreshments served after the service. Please put this date in your diaries and come along if you can to say a belated but proper farewell to Annita.
The World Day of Prayer is an international ecumenical Christian laywomen's initiative. It is run under the motto “Informed Prayer and Prayerful Action,” and is celebrated annually in over 170 countries on the first Friday in March (3rd March 2017).
