You might have heard that the Marlborough Road and Hatfield Road Methodist Churches have had the idea for an Anna Chaplaincy initiative for St. Albans . We have secured funding for five years for a full time Anna Chaplain to minister to the elderly in St. Albans. Our Lay Workers Project Committee met on 7th October and decided we would advertise now. We expect the Anna Chaplain to work ecumenically and to build a team of Anna Friends ( Volunteers) to expand the work across the city in a sustainable way. Although funded by the Methodist Church we welcome applicants from any tradition. I would be very grateful if you could please include a few words in your newsletter (between now and 8th November) about the vacancy along the lines given below. There is a link to full details on the Marlborough Road Methodist Church website.
