Seeking a new incumbent


Special open meeting on Thursday 16 February at 7.30 pm at Mappleborough Green Church

Following David Silvester’s retirement at the end of January the churches are now in what is known as an ‘interregnum’ – the period during which we begin to think about the configuration of the post and the process that leads to the appointment of the next Rector by the Bishop of Coventry.

The Archdeacon Missioner (Morris Rodham) runs the process in the Diocese, and along with a representative from the Lord Chancellor’s Ecclesiastical office (the patron who has the right of presentation this time) tries to make it as transparent as possible for everyone.  We are therefore holding a special open meeting on Thursday 16 February at 7.30 pm at Mappleborough Green Church where, in the absence of Archdeacon Morris, Stephen Burch, Area Dean of Coventry South will explain the process, and will try to answer any questions people may have about it.  The meeting has been arranged so that we can understand and start the process as soon as possible.  We invite anyone from the congregation who is interested to come and join us for the evening. Refreshments will be served from 6.45 pm.


Announcement – David Silvester’s Retirement


David has notified the Churchwardens that his application for early retirement on medical grounds has been accepted. In the light of this David has informed us that he intends to retire as of 31st January 2017. We give thanks to God for his and Val’s ministry and wish to encourage you continue to pray for them both as they make preparations for the future.

Thanks from Ben & Jess

Thanks to everyone who came to my final service yesterday, and all those who worked so hard to make it, and the lunch afterwards, such a success.  You outdid yourselves!  Thanks also to everyone who contributed so generously to my leaving present – I will send a picture of the desk in my new study as soon as I have it.
