Interregnum Update News

Interregnum Update: Summer 2019

The PCC and Wardens have met the Archdeacon and the Area Dean.  The outcome of these meetings is that Emmanuel Church and St John's Church (part of the North Meols team) will share the new incumbent. Details of how this will work in practice will be finalised after the appointment of the new incumbent.  The parish profiles for Emmanuel Church and for St John's have been produced and merged into one document which has been sent to the Diocese. 

The profile has been issued to all stipendiary clergy in Liverpool Diocese but no one has registered interest in the post.  The post was advertised in the Liverpool Diocese Bulletin (issued on 8 March) and on the Church of England Pathways website which is accessible by the clergy across the country.  If you wish to see the advert please click the link:  C of E Pathway website

The joint selection panel have met and were unable to appoint a suitable candidate to the Emmanuel & St john Crossens vacancy. 

If you have any questions please feel free to speak to the wardens, secretary or a PCC member who will be happy to help with any queries you may have. 

In the meantime, the Church is carrying on with its usual range of services & events, the wardens are taking bookings for weddings & baptisms so it’s very much ‘Church’ as usual.


Yours in Prayer.
