It was exciting to find that we received a lot of applications for the position of Vicar at St Mary’s and the task of creating a short list was difficult, but undertaken with a lot of prayer for wisdom and discernment. The selection panel were prayerfully supported by the congregation.
The final 4 candidates were received by the PCC at a supper on 26th March, giving each individual opportunity to find out more about our parish. We were humbled by the gifts that they each had to offer and confident that they were excellent choices. We thanked God for sending us such skilful servants.
The interviews took place the following day and a decision was reached . We are happy to announce that Reverend Mat Ineson will become Vicar of St Mary Magdalene from 1st September – we realise that this is sad for the members of St Matthews, Kingsdown and trust that God will speedily find them a suitable replacement.
We look forward to welcoming Mat, Emma and their family to our parish.
