You are invited to the institution and induction of The Revd. Scott Patterson (our current 'Priest in Charge') as Rector during the 10.00 am United Benefice Palm Sunday Communion Service in St. Andrew's Church, Curry Rivel, on the 25th March 2018.
The Archdeacon of Wells, The Revd. Canon Ann Gell will be present to preach and oversee the legal proceedings, along with a representative from the Bristol Cathedral Chapter who currently hold the Patronage of our Benefice. Do come along for the spectacle and celebration!
It would be nice to show a little support to the man and the church, we may all need them in the near and not so distant future.
A Church of England Glossary:
What's an institution? It's the term used to denote the admission of a new incumbent into the 'spiritualities' (spiritual things) of a parish or benefice. The institution is performed by a Bishop of the Diocese or their deputy — in this case our Archdeacon.
What's an incumbent? The holder of a parochial charge from the bishop.
What's an induction? The term used to denote the final stage, after nomination and institution, in the appointment of a new incumbent. Whereas the institution places priests in the possession of the 'spiritualities' of the benefice, the induction gives them possession of the 'temporalities' (earthly things). After institution, the bishop issues a mandate for the induction to the archdeacon, who lays the hand of the priest on the key(s) of the church door(s). The priest then tolls the bell, and is placed by the archdeacon in the seat of the incumbent in the church.
What's a Patron? A person or body of people who have the right to nominate a member of the clergy to a benefice. In our case the Bristol Cathedral Chapter.
What's a Chapter? The name given to a group of clergy that governs a Cathedral.'
