The Dean wishes to thank the clergy and the people in their parishes who have reflected on The Draft Deanery Pastoral Plan. The responses from the parishes were shared and discussed by the clergy on Thursday 25thJuly. It was agreed to appoint a facilitator who will collate the responses.  The comments will be used to revise the draft Sherwood Deanery Pastoral Plan and be presented to Bishop Patrick by September 2019. His thoughts and recommendations will be relayed to us for further refinement so that we can build a sustainable structure for the church in the area.  Five priests will be allocated to Sherwood Deanery by 2021 based on the present age profile and health of the clergy.

The minutes of our meeting of churches and schools, and an outline of the draft plan, can be viewed below.
