Vacancy Committee (Val, Pam, Joy and Jill represent Cheshunt Church)
The committee has met with Ann Jacks (the interim moderator for Cheshunt, Broxbourne and Hertford Churches).
The focus initially is on writing a pastorate profile of our church, including information about the area, worshippers and services and what we are looking for in our new church minister. The pastorate profile is being merged with that of the other two churches to produce an A4 summary sheet. The position is to be advertised in the summer when the final profile is complete. We are asking for a third share of the new minister's time. Prayers are requested for success in securing the most suitable person.
