Information on the Interregnum and our search for a new Rector...
Announcement of a new Rector
The Bishop of Reading and the Patrons of the Aldermaston and Woolhampton benefice are delighted to announce the appointment of the Revd Jane Manley as our new Rector.
The appointment is subject to the completion of the usual legal formalities, but we hope to announce shortly the date Revd Jane will be installed in the Benefice and start work with us. Please pray for Jane and her husband John and for the people of her current parish St Paul’s, Ruislip Manor, as she prepares to move.
The interviews for our new Rector took place on 23 April when a selection panel agreed upon a candidate for the post.
An announcement will be made in the next few days when the offer of the post has been accepted and the legal aspects finalised.
A Prayer for the Benefice during the Interregnum
Almighty God hold us in your loving care, lead us in the way of your son Jesus Christ, and send your Holy Spirit to guide and strengthen us in this time of uncertainty and change.
Help us Lord during the interregnum:
- to use the gifts and talents you have given to each of us for your glory,
- to seek your wisdom in prayer before we make decisions, and
- to encourage and care for each other.
Give wisdom and discernment to those charged with finding our new Rector and help us all to look forward with hope for the person who will serve us with joy, lead us by example, and enable us all to work together for the building of your kingdom,
through Jesus Christ our Lord
