During this month we will be interviewing an applicant for the role of self supporting Priest for our Benefice, Wormingford and Mount Bures with Little Horkesley, which has got me thinking about how we should endeavour to sell ourselves to a potential new Incumbent.

Mourners are unwilling to sing at funerals now, says Ronald Blythe A SEPIA, half-lit day. Wild duck fly over, squawking and honking. I am desultory: reading a bit of this, writing a bit of that.

Our second Christmas in Interregnum has passed without any major problems and with pleasing congregation numbers at most Christmas services we can conclude that the clergy who have helped us through this period have really done an excellent job. We are most grateful to Rev’ds Ray Gibbs, John Chandler, Rosie Tallowin and Robert Hughes from […]

Sitting in a new chair, Ronald Blythe thinks of the year ahead ANOTHER year, and cause for meditation. What better than to sit in the new armchair and to watch the seagulls circling. And to think. Although this is a grand term for what is going on in my head at 6 a.m. It is still dark, […]
