Vicar Vacancy

Vicar Vacancy

Our Vicar Chris Bessant left the parish on 21st July, and so our parish is now in vacancy.

Details about the post of Vicar here in Chobham and Valley End can be found here on the Guildford Diocesan Website.

 

Our Vacancy Prayer

Lord of the Church, bring your blessing upon the parish of Chobham with Valley End through the weeks and months of the vacancy.  Give strength and guidance to all who remain in responsibility, and to all those who will visit to lead us in prayer and worship. 

For those considering an application, may your guidance be with them as they seek your calling in their lives.
