Bishop Mark Davies, in consultation with parish representatives, Archdeacon David and the Area Dean Daniel, has agreed that Rev Amy-Elizabeth Sheridan, curate of St John Hey and St Thomas Leesfield, should begin a period of secondment to the parishes of St Hilda and St Stephen Audenshaw.
During the secondment, Amy-Elizabeth and the parishes will continue a period of discernment until February 2023 and it is to be hoped that Amy-Elizabeth will then test a call to become priest-in-charge at both parishes. This would follow the usual formal process of application and interview. In the meantime, please pray for Amy-Elizabeth and continue to pray for both parishes during this period of vacancy.
