Draft Pastoral Scheme for the establishment of the new Benefices of Bowbrook South and Wychebrook.

Mission and Pastoral Measure 2011 – Draft Pastoral Scheme

The Worcester Diocesan Mission and Pastoral Committee has prepared a draft Pastoral Scheme for:

• the termination of the group ministry known as The Bowbrook Group;

• the dissolution of the benefices of Bowbrook South; Bowbrook North; and

Stoke Prior and Wychbold with Upton Warren;

• the union of the parishes of Himbleton, and Huddington, and the parish

church of the parish of Huddington to become a chapel of ease; and the

incorporation of an extra-parochial place known as Shell into the area of

the new parish;

• the creation of two new benefices, the designation of the first incumbents

of each benefice, for their places of residence, and for the future patronage

arrangements for the new benefices;

• the disposal of the parsonage house of the benefice of Bowbrook North;

and

• the establishment of a group ministry for the new benefices;

all in the diocese of Worcester

Representations for or against the draft scheme should be made to the Church Commissioners by the 17th December 2019.  Details of how to do this are contained in the Formal Notice on display in the Church of St John the Baptist, Feckenham along with the Draft Scheme or can be viewed on the Church Commissioners website www.ccpastoral.org.
