Arrangements During the Interregnum

During the interregnum the legal responsibility for worship, occasional offices, pastoral care, mission and so on falls to the churchwardens and Area Dean, rather than other licensed clergy or readers. The JPCC has agreed Nick Dorley-Brown will liaise with the diocese over the Rectory and work with Barbara to convene Leadership Team Meetings and other meetings as appropriate; and Gill Bradbury with regard to who will lead and preach at services. These decisions will be made as part of the provision across the West Wight Cluster with the guidance of David Isaac, Acting Area Dean. Services in the Benefice will be reviewed regularly by the small group authorised to lead services.
