A new Team Vicar is announced

 

‘Fr Nick is delighted to let you know that subject to satisfactory DBS checks and references, Fr Robert Wright has been appointed to the post of Team Vicar in the Team, with responsibility both at All Saints and across the wider team.

 If all goes to plan it is likely that he will move to Cheltenham sometime around mid-June, with his wife, Lindy (currently his fiancée) and we hope for a licensing date in June or July. They will live at 8 Boulton Road.

 Meanwhile, our second Team Vicar vacancy arising from Liz’s move in April has been  advertised in the Church Times. with interviews scheduled for the 9th May 2018.

Please pray for all involved in this second appointment as we aim to have the Team Clergy back up to full strength.’

LOOKING AHEAD

 

12 - 13 MAY      TEAM-WIDE WEEKEND PRAYER VIGIL

As we seek to discern the next steps in the life of our parishes and Team, we are holding a  Team-wide Prayer Vigil.

It was felt that the likelihood of finding individuals happy to be in church between Midnight and 4.00 am was quite small!

so a “Weekend Prayer Vigil” made up of two 12 hour periods on Saturday and Sunday, seemd preferable to a continuous 24-hr event.

Existing Sunday services will be incorpirated into the timescale, to create a greater sense of shared participation and leavefewer slots to be covered.

This should bring the Vigil to the attention of a greater number of people.

More information about timings and locations will follow soon,
