Archbishop of York welcomes 'fourth House' website built by survivors group


A NEW website has been created by two
survivors of clerical abuse to support other
survivors and inform Church of England bishops,
dioceses, and the National Safeguarding Team.

The website, houseofsurvivors.org, which went
live last Friday, collates guides, books,
newspaper articles, documentaries, survivor
initiatives, papers, and reviews.

The name alludes to the General Synod's
Houses of Bishops, Clergy, and Laity.
The website states: "A fourth House exists, long
unrecognised, which has done more to drive
necessary change in the Church's structures
and cultures."

●   Following the retirement of our Rector -
      the Parish Churches are now in an interregnum,
      which means that we will be without a resident rector
      until a new minister is appointed.

During the interregnum our Sunday services
will continue at the usual times, with the worship
being alternately led either by a visiting priest,
or a member of our lay ministry team.

Occasionally the four churches in our benefice,
Bugbrooke, Harpole, Kislingbury and
Rothersthorpe will join for a joint Sunday worship,
if this happens advance notice will be given
during the preceding Sundays' service,
and on the church notice boards. (FB)
