A prayer for vacancy

Heavenly Father, Good Shepherd of all,
during this time of vacancy at St Mary’s we ask that you
comfort those who worry,
strengthen those who carry the weight of responsibility,
support and guide the PCC,
inspire a priest with your calling to this ministry,
and stay near us as we continue to worship you
together in this place.

"Preserve" the Pipes

On Sunday 10 March (Mothering Sunday) after the service there will be home-made marmalade (and other sweet treats) for sale in the Community Centre.

All proceeds will go towards the Organ Fund, keeping our pipe organ in good voice as it enters its 93rd year of filling St Mary’s with music.

Update on appointing the next Vicar

We are pleased to be able to let you know that the advert for the next Vicar of Whitkirk will be published in the coming days.

This advert is supported by a parish profile and brochure, both of which you are welcome to view (a link will be shared once the advert is published). Our thanks to all those involved in the hard work that has gone in to their production. 

The advert will be live for around a month, following which there will be a shortlisting process, and interviews with candidates will be held in early May. The PCC has nominated Janet Blenkinsop and Adam Kelly as our parish representatives on the interview panel. They will be joined by representatives of the Bishop and our Patron, The Society for the Maintenance of the Faith. 

We will keep you informed of any major developments and ask for your continued prayers as the process moves forward.
