When a parish becomes vacant it is said to be in an “interregnum”, a period “between reigns”. Until a new priest is in place a process known as “Sequestration” is put into effect. Sequestrators are appointed with the duty to ensure that services are maintained and that property is cared for during the vacancy. The Churchwardens and the Area Dean are the usual Sequestrators appointed.

Please see the attached notes for information. The fees for Sunday and weekday services shown in the notes change annually and can be found here.
