No, it’s not an April Fool! The Church Commissioners officially approved the new benefice of Penshurst, Fordcombe and the Chiddingstone Churches which comes into effect Thursday 1 April 20201. This is exciting because it means that we can now start to recruit our new Rector. Advertisements will appear next week in the Church Times and on Pathways, the Church of England’s careers website. Interviews should be held in June.
