One of the questions just before we began the APCM was, will we finish in time for us to be back home to watch Dr Thorne at 9 o’clock? We were, which also pleased those hooked on the Night Manager. It was a good meeting looking back over 2015 with gratitude to the many who worked so hard in St Andrews.
The PCC met last night and appointed a small group to write the parish profile. When it is approved by the PCC it will be sent to the Archdeacon and Rural Dean who know about these things. If and when they are happy with it, we will be able to advertise for a new vicar in the Church Times.
Meanwhile, yesterday morning the church was filled with more than two hundred children from the Royal Kent School singing their hearts out and telling the Easter story. We will sing from our hearts at 10 o’clock this Easter Sunday when Bishop Michael Baughen will lead the worship and preach. A Happy Easter!
