From the 1st of March 2020, St John’s Friern Barnet has been in a vacancy process. This is the time when a new Incumbent is appointed for the parish.

While a prepared schedule has been communicated for the 2020 appointment process, unfortunately this has been affected by the Covid-19 pandemic.

The PCC and Churchwardens are carrying out all the necessary preparatory tasks in readiness for revised appointment process schedule.

With the ministry of retired priests, Father Ben and Father Guy, the support of the Area Dean, the Archdeacon of Hampstead and the Bishop of Edmonton, we are hopeful that the vacancy process will not only be a period of smooth transition but also opportunity for us to renew our faithful commitment to our parish through prayer, worship and service.

The church wardens are responsible for the day to day decision making and operations within the parish church and should be contacted, using details under the contact us section, for any services or support requests.
