Churchwardens’ Tea

A gathering of the Deanery’s Churchwardens with the Rural Dean, Assistant Rural Dean and Deanery Lay Chair.

This social event will be a good opportunity for wardens to share experience, concerns and questions and will include a presentation of the forthcoming Archdeacon’s Visitation Inspections.

Please let Jo know if you can attend.

Churchwardens’ Training

The day will begin with coffee and light refreshments at 9.30am, and we will start promptly at 9.45am.  Topics to be covered will include:

  • Churchwarden relationships with clergy and PCC
  • Issues arising from Quinquennial Inspections and Archdeacon Visitations (Church Inspections)
  • Insurance and Risk Assessments
  • Safeguarding
  • Faculties, Archdeacon’s Letters, Church Log & Terrier, and other processes

There will be opportunities for group discussion.  If you have specific questions, do please let the Archdeacon have these in advance.

It would be helpful if you could let the Archdeacon know if you intend to attend.  (See the letter for information to send.)
