Since former vicar Edmond Cargill Thompson moved on last September, Holy Trinity Parish Church in Mossford Green, has been supported by its staff team, including associate minister Margaret Chapman, deacon Rosmary Potten and reader Toby Robbins.

Warden Maxine Paul, another member of the church staff, said: “We have been very lucky.

“The congregation have been very supportive with us generally.

“The only service we have not been able to do was the Christmas Day 8am service but everyone came to Midnight Mass instead.”

The warden added the new vicar - set to be announced in May - would bring “leadership, and new depth to our worship”.

The new vicar would also need to “comfortable with a diverse” worship, according to Ms Paul.
