SO THE VICAR IS LEAVING is a vital handbook for churchwardens, PCCs, readers and all who share in the responsibility for leading a church through an interregnum. It focuses on many practical issues including: - arranging the regular services - providing for continuing pastoral care - maintaining the church buildings - managing the parish efficiently - working with deanery or diocesan colleagues to find a new vicar - welcoming your new priest Written with the specific aim of helping to make an interregnum a positive time of growth, this resource will be welcomed by local churches, by vicars about to leave or about to join a parish and by rural deans, archdeacons and others who assist parishes through such a time. MIKE ALEXANDER is a rural dean and vicar of six churches in South Derbyshire.
