Feedback from the Parochial Church Council meeting held on the 12th February 2014

The Parochial Church Council would like to express thanks and appreciation for your continued support during the period of recruitment for a new Vicar.

Update on recruitment for the new Vicar

Further to the advertisement in the Church Times, there have been 4 expressed interests for additional information about the vacancy for a new Vicar. The closing date for applications is on the 27th February 2014. Barbara and I will be doing the shorting listing after the closing date. Interviews are schedule for 27th March 2014. Volunteers are needed to help with preparing lunch and showing candidates around the Vicarage, Church and Church yard.

Please continue to pray that God will send the right person to lead the ministry of the Christian faith at St. John’s Church.


Cost to keep St. John’s Church in 2014 with the love of Jesus

At the Parochial Council meeting on the 12th February, it was confirmed that St John’s need to increase its income to meet the weekly cost of £1,800.00. The PCC welcomes your ideas on how we could increase the income for St John’s Church. Please speak to Barbara Elliott and Carol Hartley, Church Wardens.

St John’s has a Weekly Envelop Scheme for offerings which is giving towards the up keep of the Church. You could also gift aid your offering which would increase the amount you give to St John’s by 25% at no extra cost to you.
