The Church Commissioners have now published the legal Scheme to implement the Benefice moving towards formally uniting as a single Parish. The public consultation period runs until 27 February 2019. Copies of the notices and details of how you can make your views known, either for or against, are by all church doors in the Benefice, and you can also view them at www.ccpastoral.org. There is also further information available here.
We believe this step of unification will help us work together more closely across our area and be a powerful symbol of our unity as we seek to advance the Kingdom of God here in our land.
If you would like to discuss this further, please feel free to contact me or your PCC Secretary.
Lay Reader, with specific responsibility for the Parish Unification process
