Tuna sandwiches, satsumas and chocolate eclairs sustained our PCC members on Tuesday this week as they worked late into the night to come to a common consensus on the sort of vicar we need to lead St Andrews. Steve Cox from the Guildford Diocese urged us to face the fact that numbers attending our Sunday services have been declining in recent years. More positively, he mentioned some things that we are doing very well and urged us to emphasize this when writing up our profile to attract able applicants.
In the meantime, let’s buck the trend and all be frequent worshippers at St Andrew’s every Sunday. And if you are not yet on the electoral roll, sign up today!
