Vacancy Information 

Vacancy Information

Following the departure of Revd. Canon Debbie Sellin in June, our Parish is now in vacancy and seeking to appoint our new Vicar.

What happens now?

We have drawn up our Parish Profile and we are advertising the post.
We hope to be holding interviews during the Spring. In the mean time, you can view our profile here.

Please continue to pray for our leadership team and those who hold responsibility during the vacancy, particularly for:
Alex, Guy and Patricia, our Church Wardens,
David, our Associate Vicar as he coordinates our Ministry team,
Kia, our Curate,
Sarah, our Children's and Youth minister,
and Heather, our Parish Administrator.

Please also pray for those who will be drawn to apply for the post and those who support them.

We hope you will join in any of these opportunities to pray:

  • Julian Meetings, 6.30pm at St. Martin's Church on the 4th Sunday of every month
  • Monthly Encounter services
  • Intercessions at every Church service
  • At every Home Group

A prayer for the vacancy:

Lord Jesus, we thank you for Debbie our Vicar,
and her leadership of our churches over the past eight years.
As we pray for your blessing upon her in her new ministry as Bishop of Southampton, so we pray your blessing upon us too.
Give wisdom to our Area Dean and Church Wardens in this time of vacancy; give grace to us in our support of them;
and give clarity of mind to those who will discern your choice of a new Vicar for this parish, that we may continue, in the strength of your Holy Spirit, to transform church and transform lives for your glory. Amen.
