Richard has told me that on Tuesday the following motion was passed at St Brice’s with 84 % of the voting members in agreement:
With great sorrow, this Vestry instructs the Parish Officials to explore all options, including discussions with our neighbouring parishes and the Deanery Officials, about the best way of leaving this building and moving to another site to continue the mission and the ministry of St. Brice’s.
This Vestry authorizes the Parish Officials to enter into tentative agreements about the details of this move, and then to call another St. Brice’s Vestry meeting to present the plan to the Vestry for discussion and approval.
In all this, the Parish Officials shall preserve St. Brice’s as a separate parish family.
Please find attached a pastoral letter responding to this situation that I would ask be read during your services on Sunday. And let us pray for one another.
Under the guidance of the great Shepherd,
UPDATE: On Saturday, 28 April, it was learned that it may be possible for St Brice's to stage renovations that would allow them continued use of parts of their facility.
