Peter Hill – Archdeacon of Nottingham 30 th October 2011 Im involved in the deployment strategy for the diocese and looking at where we put vicars, clergy and mission leaders I the diocese for 2020, and just for your prayers, at the moment there are roughly 150 clergy in the diocese… but by 2020, unless there is a serious miracle of ordination and vocation, there will only be 100 available to us. Thats a third less. And so, unless something changes we will be placing lay people in charge of parishes before too long.
