Advice to Churchwardens during a Parish Vacancy

Posted on the 21st Feb 2021 in the category Resources


The Forward in Faith booklet Vacancies in Society Parishes: Advice from Forward in Faith (2018) explains the process for appointing a new incumbent or priest in charge, offers advice to parishes that are vacant, and draws attention to things that need to be done before a vacancy arises. Much of the information and advice is relevant to all parishes, though some of it is specific to parishes in which a resolution under the House of Bishops' Declaration on the Ministry of Bishops is in force.


The booklet is available on the Forward in Faith website at https://www.forwardinfaith.com/Advice.php

 

This page also offers

  • legal advice regarding clergy holding office beyond the age of 70, and
  • advice concerning resolutions under the House of Bishops' Declaration on the Ministry of Bishops and Priests.
