As testament to the work I've been doing, and in belated acknowledgement that we've got more to do than we have resources for, my line manager said they're going to be looking for 2 people to replace me.

You are braver than I ever was, Sipech, though I guess you could use it as a positive in an interview that you needed to be replaced by two people?

Sanemaniac is right. That is indeed something to use in interview, but even more so in your written applications where you outline your previous experience. ( I speak from my own experience.)

Prayers would be appreciated in what is a very scary, at-times-annoying-and-maybe-exciting time: the rector of the church where I work has convinced the vestry to cut my job to part time with no benefits (read: no healthcare, no retirement) as of June. I have decided, after much prayer and staying awake at night (and spousal support), to keep the part-time job, and form a non-profit to do the other half that the rector doesn't want the church to support any more (involving underprivileged children in church music - don't get me started on the ways I think this is wrong). Becoming independent in this part of my ministry feels very freeing in one respect: the tiresome rector cannot dictate how I work with my kids or annoy me with his pretense that they do not exist in this church. However, I will now need to do the fundraising work to support this ministry (and me) outside the church, skills I truly do not have. I don't know what will come of this - I'm really trying to trust that it will all come out ok.

I didn't plan on trying to negotiate, but if I were, what do you think would be a reasonable request? I know they'll never go for an hourly rate, but I could ask for a day rate, or I might ask for a pro-rated bonus (by resigning, I would normally forego my bonus which would have been accrued thus far).
