Sale of the vicarage at Sowerby Close – Diocesan Property
We are sad to announce that the Diocese has decided to sell one of the two vicarages in the Parish – that of Sowerby close. The diocese still has a second property at Kings Orchard just over the road from St Johns, where the new incumbent will reside when he is appointed.
We were informed about the intention to sell in August, as this is diocesan property, we sadly did not have any choice in the matter, neither would we reap any financial benefits as a church from the sale. Following on from that on the 10th September, we were formally informed that the property has now been sold.
This week we pray for
- Emmanuel, Sidlow Bridge, St Mathew the Apostle & Evangelist, Good Shepherd Tadworth & St Peter Woodmansterne.
- For International Day of Peace.
- Diocesan Personnel –
Ruth Martin & Jackie Pontin Diocesan secretary, and Company secretary and her Deputy respectively.
