Iona Trip 2015

Read the Vicar's report of the Group's trip to Iona.

The Future of our Parishes, our Group, our Deanery, our Church.

Follow this link for the Mission Community Shaping Group report on this matter.

We are all aware that the clergy, and specially the stipendiary clergy, are getting more and more parishes to look after, and that we all find ourselves being asked for more and more money to pay the bills.

In other words, we are apparently being asked to pay more and more for less and less. This cannot go on. The clergy are stretched to breaking-point and few of us feel willing (even if we are able) to contribute any more to the coffers. We might at one time have thought that ‘it’ll see me out’. I don’t think that is an option any more. We must do something!

You will remember that there was a consultation, parish by parish, some months ago. Following that, a working group was set up, including representatives from all parts of the Deanery and also from our Methodist and URC friends, who are in much the same position as we are. The working group has spent many hours sifting through your responses. As a result, a draft plan has been produced. It is important that we all have a chance to see the whole thing at one go: we must all be able to see how the findings have been arrived at, and we must all have a chance to ask questions and formulate our future together.

Keep up with Annie May

See Annie May's blog. ALSO look at the message from Father Christmas specially to Annie May! The link is on her blog.

I am busy redesigning our pages to be mobile friendly. This will take time so bear with me if some things don't work as well as they should.
