Davis, Peter Langdon (Matthias): Prohibition for life with effect from 01/09/17

Stillwell, Wayne Anthony: Prohibition for life with effect from 22/02/13

The Grievance Procedure was introduced when the new form of tenure, Common Tenure was implemented on January 31 2011. The procedure is designed to ensure that office holders have a way of raising their concerns that is confidential and fair. Ideally these should be aired and resolved quickly to the satisfaction of all concerned without the need to recourse to formal proceedings. On occasions where this is not possible this procedure will ensure that matters are dealt with promptly, fairly and consistently.

It must be stressed that reconciliation is a desired outcome, but never at the expense of failing to deal adequately with the issues raised.  

The Diocese undertakes to train all those who will be involved in administering the Grievance Procedure so that they may properly fulfil the requirements of the procedure and the principles that underlie it. Further details on the procedure and the Diocesan approach may be found in Section 9 of the Clergy Handbook (Common Tenure)

Copies of the Grievance Procedure Code of Practice and the supporting guidelines may be obtained via the web link: http://www.churchofengland.org/clergy-office-holders/common-tenure.aspx

Listed below are policies that are applicable to all clergy within the Diocese of Derby. The list below is not exhaustive and is in the process of being updated. If there is anything that you need that you so not see below then please contact Jackie Croft at jackie.croft@derby.anglican.org or telephone her on 07799 644589.

Licensing

The new rules governing licensing applications for Village Halls and other Community Premises have come into force, through the Dept. for Culture, Media & Sport (DCMS). This appears to make it simpler to apply for temporary licenses or variations to a current license. Churches per se do not need a licence for concert or theatre performances (although church halls do need a licence for such use), so long as no sales of alcohol take place. Find explanation / news release at: http://www.culture.gov.uk/reference_library/media_releases/6288.aspx. Find more at link http://www.churchcare.co.uk/legal.php?GN . Find links to relevant applications forms at: http://www.culture.gov.uk/what_we_do/alcohol_and_entertainment/3189.aspx

Churches and Faith Buildings: Realising the Potential

The paper has been produced by a working group comprising officials from Her Majesty’s Treasury, Communities and Local Government, Office of the Third Sector in the Cabinet Office, the Department for Culture, Media and Sport and Defra in conjunction with representatives of the Church of England. The paper should help dioceses and similar structures in other denominations and faiths to have a better understanding of how to access resources that will enable them to engage directly at a strategic level with the local and regional structures within which funding priorities and decisions are made. In turn, these structures and funders will be better equipped to understand the important role of the C of E and faith groups in delivering public services. A hard copy can be obtained from rebecca.payne@c-of-e.org.uk or read the full report on http://www.cofe.anglican.org/about/cathandchurchbuild/realising.doc.

Do you run a charity shop? Do you run a village hall?

The Health and Safety Executive have added a relevant case study to their case study examples of risk assessments. Already available is one for a village hall. See http://www.hse.gov.uk/risk/casestudies/index.htm

Why might retired clergy need chaplains?

BT says, “It’s good to talk”, and so it is; after all, clergy in retirement have happy and sad experiences like everyone else!

Pastoral care will initially come from the parish priest or Rural Dean, but to have a couple who are there especially for you can mean a great deal.

We keep in touch by phone or letter annually, and if need be visit, to offer extra support. We are only a phone call away from clergy, ready to give help or advice about various categories of Retirement Housing and any other issues of concern

The Living Building event was held on the 15th May and was a time of encouragement for all who attended. The keynote addresses from Anne Sloman, Chair of the Church’s Building Council, and from Rachel Treweek, Archdeacon of Northoult, envisioned many to see how their buildings could be used to enable more meaningful engagement with local communities. A choice of 12 workshops gave individuals a chance to ‘dig deeper’ into a range of topics including ‘Welcoming People’, ‘The World of Grants’, ‘Tourism, Buildings and Mission and ‘Rural Churches - blessing or curse?’ These were followed by stories from Langwith, Pilsley and Stanton by Dale, which each spoke of how buildings have been transformed in our own diocese.

Below are a list of resources / presentations that were given on the day

This fund dates back from 1985 and the Faith in the City Report. Since its beginning millions of pounds worth of grants have been given to church-based community projects. The Fund supports projects which combat the causes or effects of poverty either in the ten per cent most deprived areas of the Country or in groups of people who may be at particular disadvantage.

After 25 years CUF now finds itself in a position of having to raise funds through individual, corporate or Diocesan financial sponsorship in order to continue giving support to projects. Therefore the Main Grant has been suspended for 2010 while reserves are built up, but the Mustard Seed Grants continue.

Mustard Seed grants are for a maximum of £5,000 and go towards funding new initiatives which are intended to develop into something bigger at a later date. They are also given for pilot projects or for new developments within existing projects.

For details on applying for a Mustard seed Grant go to http://www.cuf.org.uk/funding.aspx.

All CUF Applications have to go through a Diocesan Link Officer. To talk about your project and applying to CUF, please contact
Joy Bates, Derby Church House, joy.bates@derby.anglican.org, 01332 388684.

 

It is the nature of disasters and emergencies that they are unpredictable. We do not know when, where or in what form they will happen. What we do know is that it is important that trained people can be relied upon to respond quickly with appropriate help.

The role of the churches in this is to provide pastoral care and support as a concrete expression of the gospel in a time of crisis.

The Diocese acts as co-ordinator for the other denominations and Faith Groups and works alongside those responsible for counselling and other expressions of care, both at the scene of an incident, at the survivors’ centre and the relatives’ reception centre.

The plan is flexible, with the ability to operate in part or in total, It can operate on a county-wide level, on a purely local level, or in conjunction with the plans of neighbouring counties.
