Many MANY thanks for all the prayers and support that went into the interview process.  Candidates were incredibly appreciative of the welcome they were given and, despite the challenges of the two days, had a real sense of support from our family.  In answer to prayer the panel and all those involved (some 200!) were sensitive to God’s leading, appreciative of the positive aspects of each candidate and open to discussion and the discernment of others.  This culminated in a strong alignment of what we believe was the right decision at the end of the process.  However, in the Archdeacons words … ‘We are not yet able to say anything specific about the outcome, other than that the process is continuing and the Bishop appreciates all those who join him in continued prayer for the vocations of our church and those who have shared with us.  We hope to make a further announcement sometime before the end of March’.  Again, many thanks.
