Rector Vacancy information

After 12 years as Team Rector of Leominster, Mike Kneen has now retired and we have started the process to find his replacement.  The Rector of Leominster (sometimes referred to as the vicar) is the Rector of the town, as well as The Priory Church, and also leads the Leominster Team Ministry, a group of 22 other churches in the team. The Rector has an important role to play in the life of our community and to take a spiritual lead, not just to the Christian and church community, but to everyone who lives here. For this reason, we are seeking people's views on the role, and key characteristics of a new Rector, the priorities for the development of the Priory Church and how they think the vicar should be involved in the life of the town.

We are seeking your views in the following ways:

A consultation with those who attend the Priory, via a Zoom meeting and a survey. The survey can be completed online or printed out and completed.  To access the Priory survey online click here . The same survey to print out and complete offline can be found here . The deadline for completing the survey or returning it to the Forbury Office is 26th February. If you receive the Priory newsletter, you have the link to the Zoom meeting on Thursday 28th January at 7pm. Otherwise, please email  churchwarden@leominsterpriory.org.uk and  you will be sent the link.

A wider consultation will take place with people who live and/or work in the town. Again, this will be via a Zoom meeting and a survey. The survey will also be available in the February edition of Leominster News. To complete the Leominster town survey online click here . We are also holding a consultation meeting via zoom for the whole community of Leominster, which will take place on 23rd February at 7pm. If you would like to join, please contact the churchwardens at churchwarden@leominsterpriory.org.uk

Please spread the word about the consultation, and encourage people to complete the questionnaire.  Any queries ring the Forbury Office on 01568 612124 or 07821 936301.
