During a vacancy, the churchwardens are responsible for the day to day running of the parish, including ensuring that services take place as usual. The Ministry Team – together with some visiting ministers and Gemma returning from maternity leave in October, will enable our usual pattern of Sunday and mid-week service and parish ministerial responsibilities to continue.
Nevertheless, filling the gap created by vicars leaving is not easy and it is important that we all work as a team, support each other well and communicate well with each other and our congregation. The ministry team and the wardens met in June with Simon and Louise to look at what happens currently in St Paul’s and All Saints and who will do what in the vacancy. If you would like to have more detail, here is a list of tasks with the name against each one.
