The new rector search
The result of the congregational consultation was that the majority would be prepared to accept a female Rector. Women will therefore be considered as candidates for the post.
The closing date for applications is the end of February; Please also remember we are all responsible for praying for the new rector. Give thanks for the cv´s we have already received and pray that the selection committee may be able to discern God´s leading.
You may find the following prayer to be useful:
Prayer for the Election of a Minister
Almighty God, giver of every good gift: Look graciously on your Church, and so guide the minds of those who shall choose a rector for this parish, that we may receive a faithful pastor, who will care for your people and equip us for our ministries; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
