Vacancy process step two - The Parish Prepares

Making It Easier > Processes > Vacancies > The parish prepares

Helping the parish prepare fully

A parish needs to look at a number of matters and the legislation requires some formal meetings (Section 11 and 12)
 
  1. Area Dean (and Lay Chair) meets Church Wardens to plan vacancy
  2. The Archdeacon, Area Dean and Lay Chair hold informal meeting with the church wardens & PCC to look at all aspects of the future (Pre Section 11 Meeting - sample agenda available)
  3. PCC hold a formal Meeting (Section 11) to consider:-
    - Appointing 2 lay members as Parish Representatives in selection process
    - Resolutions on the Ordination of Women (guidance available)
    - Preparation of Parish Profile (see step 4)
