The Benefice Survey – Your Church, Your Say!
As we trailed in the April Issue our Profile Team are seeking to enlist the support and involvement of the whole community of Norton and Staplegrove by conducting a Survey as part of the preparatory work towards seeking the appointment of a new rector. Rather than attempting to distribute paper copies, we have decided to include the Survey within these pages, which are planned to be placed on the website of our Parish Council, and on Facebook. You can also download a pdf copy of the Survey from the link below. We may also make a limited number of paper copies available for collection at the Co-Op. We invite you all to take a few minutes to print the Survey pages and respond to the questions, then scan and email the responses to us, or post the completed form through the letterbox at our Village Hall. We have initially asked for the forms to be completed and returned by Sunday 17 May, but this is likely to be extended in the present circumstances. We are keen to hear from everyone, not just regular churchgoers. All replies will be anonymous, but results will be made public. They will help to inform our vision for the future of your church. In due course, and when circumstances permit, a public “Your Church, Your Say – The Next Step” Vision Event will be held to enable you to hear and discuss the wide range of views that we expect to see in the responses to the Survey.
