The Readers Write
I write this we are about to celebrate the festival of Christ the King. And as you read it, we will just have celebrated,
or be about to celebrate, Advent. That period of waiting and reflection that leads to Christmas and the celebration of the
birth of our Lord. Or, in today’s consumer society, a period of increasing excitement and the anticipation of the piles
of presents to come.
Advent is the beginning
of the church year and is a period of just four weeks. But our Benefice starts this new church year without a Rector, and
our period of waiting, for a new incumbent, is going to be considerably more than four weeks.
Some of us have been in this position before and can affirm that the long
wait then, some eighteen months, was worth the wait – with the advent of John Hall! This time around we are much better
equipped to cope with the wait; we now have three Readers and an excellent group of lay leaders taking Family Services, Messy
Church and initiating new forms of worship.

we remain a strong, unified worshipping community ready for the inevitable advent of a new incumbent. We can then start off
running, rather than having to re-invent the wheel!
is the time of promise: it is not the time of fulfilment.
Yours in Christ.
