The Church Wardens thank us for our prayers for the interview process. In particular we had been praying that everyone would be of the same mind about God's will for our church regarding the candidate who should be offered the job. There had been a clear consensus and that candidate has now accepted the post. The diocese have asked us not to publish the details yet, as it’s still subject to various clearances but do talk to a warden for more details.
