Vacancy Matters We are delighted that Bishop Alan will lead the team to interview prospective candidates. His diary is quite full but he has set the date for Weds 7th March. The closing date for applications will be Friday 9th February. We are advised that we should wait until after Christmas to advertise – when more clergy will be looking for a new post. Please pray that our efforts will continue to be guided by the Holy Spirit.  Vacancy Steering Group

 

Let us give thanks for the efforts of all those, especially Di and Paula, who have helped to move the Benefice along during the past months and pray that they will continue to do so in the few months ahead.

“A date for your new diary! Sunday 18th March, 7pm, ‘Darkness Falls’ – a dramatic re-telling of John’s Gospel by professional actors from the Saltmine Theatre Company, at Sharnbrook Upper School. Moving, funny, poetic and fantastical, the play mixes vivid storytelling with beautiful live music to bring you a timeless story as you’ve never seen it before.  Admission is free, but advance booking required (donations on the night welcome).  Bookings taken from January onwards – further details to follow after Christmas.”
