Vacancies - guidance for parishes

Wakefield Diocese produces various resources to help guide parishes through a vacancy or interregnum (when their priest leaves). This information is normally given to Parochial Church Councils at a special meeting (usually) with the Archdeacon before the outgoing priest leaves. That meeting helps explain what is involved, and what will happen next. These papers are a support and reminder.
