It is planned to advertise the post on 25th June with a closing date of 3rd August.
Interviews for the prospective candidates will be on 6th September. For obvious reasons, we have to keep the identity of those applying secret.
The interview panel will consist of four representatives from each of our four parishes of Blackrod, Wingates, Daisy Hill, and Westhoughton, and four clergy representatives – Revd. Angela, Revd. Terry Clark, our Area Dean, Jean Burgess, Archdeacon of Bolton and Mark Ashcroft, Bishop of Bolton.
If anyone wants further information, do ask any of the wardens. Again, it does seem a slow process but it is progressing and we want to ensure that we have the person that God is calling to the post. Angela
