The bishop and archdeacon have dragged the Church to an all-time low, it’s a laughing stock
I LARGELY support the sentiments contained in your front-page lead article of the September 29 edition (right). Rev Hough resigned, and an adequate grace period has been allowed to lapse, covering additional benefits.
Weddings is just one issue in this long, sad and sorry saga, but the bishop and his staff choose to brush the rest under the carpet.
There is more than adequate cause for eviction from the Hermitage regardless of the “non-confrontational and non-aggressive” manner of the Church. This procrastination would never be countenanced in industry or commerce, so why is it tolerated here? All financial issues were long since addressed and cleared up in accordance with Mrs Hough’s employment contract.
The bishop and the archdeacon have dragged the Church to an alltime low, which is now nothing more than a laughing stock everywhere we turn.
Who will pay for repairs and cleaning of the Hermitage? Why is a “parish profile” taking so long? Should it not be a current document?
Dr Mike Earles, Lapta
