Society Website: Vacancies Section and other changes

Posted on the 7th Oct 2015 in the category News



At the request of the Council of Bishops, a new Vacancies section has been added to the Society website. The intention is that all vacancies in parishes under the oversight of a bishop of The Society will be listed here, to give Society priests an overview of the positions that are currently being advertised. For each vacancy, there is a link to the advert on the relevant diocesan website. (Advertising in New Directions will continue to be a good idea, as an advertisement there will also reach priests who are not actively looking for a move.)

 

Over the summer, other areas of the Society website have been re-organized and streamlined. Further information has been added to the About Us section. The material is now presented in a more user-friendly way, in an increased number of pages, which are accessible from a drop-down menu.

 

The new Priests and Deacons section includes the forms which permanent deacons of both sexes and male deacons preparing for ordination to the priesthood can use to register as Deacons of The Society.

 

The resources section includes the statements recently published by the Council of Bishops and the supporting leaflet

 

The Dioceses and Parishes section includes lists of churches in each diocese that are affiliated to The Society. From this page there are links to the diocesan pages, which in turn have a link to the list of churches in the diocese concerned. For each church, the listing includes the postcode of the church building and links to the parish’s page on A Church Near You and the parish website.
