Details regarding proposed pastoral reorganisation affecting the benefices of The Witham Group; The Colsterworth Group; Castle Bytham with Creeton; Corby Glen; and The North Beltisloe Group in the Diocese of Lincoln.

The proposals provide for: the dissolution of all the benefices, disposal of a parsonage house, and the creation of four new benefices and ancillary matters.

You can see the full draft scheme below.

This consultation has now closed. As representations were received against the proposals the matter may need to be considered by the Commissioners' Mission, Pastoral and Church Property Committee on 17th July 2019 in private session.

The committee papers and annexes can be found above. 

Post meeting note - the Committee decided that the Scheme should proceed, though ask the Bishop to consider an amendment to allow a decision to be made by him (after consultation with the first incumbent) as to which of the two properties in question should be the official residence of the incumbent of the proposed new benefice of The Bytham Parishes.

Full reasons for the Committee's decision will be published in due course.

All correspondence received by the Commissioners will be treated as public correspondence.
