On 19th June more work was done on the profile at a PCC/Planning group in church. There is still work to do but we are getting there. Thank goodness Hilary, Sue, Kath and others made such a good job of the draft.
Work is underway on combining the two parish profiles.
The diocese have, as yet, made no formal application that the two parishes become a United Benefice. We make the assumption that at the last Joint PCC meeting where the Archdeacon mentioned the matter, more or less in passing, since there was no stated objection, the diocese are preparing draft proposals. When these are made available we will of course have a full open meeting to discuss them.
