Trial New Service Pattern Feb 2020

After discussion between the Rural Dean, churchwardens and PCCs of Warmington benefice, it was decided to have a trial new service pattern.  This will start at the beginning of February 2020.  It aims to provide a starting point to support our new part-time incumbent by focussing on a reduced Sunday service workload, and also to reduce the workload in the interregnum.

It ensures that each church has a 'fair share' of services in any month, broadly consistent with Parish electoral role/average congregation - with at least two services per parish.  There is always one benefice Communion service on any given Sunday.  Each Parish has at least one Sunday Communion service per month.

It continues with the 5th Sunday and 3rd Tuesday benefice Communion service and it increases the number of 'benefice services' to bring the churches and congregations closer together within the benefice.  There will be increased involvement of laity in services.

Please refer to the calendar for fuller details of the servies and special services such as the Mary Queen of Scots Memorial Service at Fotheringhay on Sunday, 9 February.
