This is a huge disappointment. I really wanted a shot at this one. It's a gorgeous church and their profile was very exciting. What is more, I fitted the person spec. exactly.
I have sent many application forms into Southwark Diocese and I have received this bog standard reply to all of them. I would have thought that I would have stood a good chance of getting an interview down there as the diocese is renowned for being a home for liberals and other assorted oddballs (the late Dean of Southwark, being a perfect example of this). I don't know if I'm just blacklisted or if they only ever interview "important" people for their jobs and I'm not "sexy" enough for them. However, unless someone has the guts to tell me straight out that there's no way they would ever even consider employing me, I will persevere. I shall be like the annoying widow that pesters the judge until he gives in and gives her what she wants.
