RECOVERY, RESTORATION AND REFLECTION
In my role as a of Priest it is recommended that I take a Sabbatical after seven years in Ordained Ministry. This is due to the rigours of Parish Ministry and the need to take time of rest, renewal and re-creation. This year on the 5thof July I will have been Ordained for ten years.
So over the last couple of months it has been realised that taking a Sabbatical would be timely and sensible. In my own case and in addition sustained additional family situations and pressures have contributed to my recognition that a Sabbatical would be of benefit both to myself and the Church here in Neston.
Therefore, I will be laying down my role as Vicar of Neston from the beginning of May till the end of July this year. We have a capable team in place that will carry out the ministry of the Parish through this time.
Yours in Christ, Alan
