A word in fond farewell….

My last position of leadership in the church has also been my longest - I have been here for fifteen years!  During that time I have done everything in my power to educate, equip and enable you to carry out your ministry.  In turn, you have supported and encouraged me.  I am more grateful than I can say for that.  I will no longer be your priest, but I will always be your friend and companion on the journey.

All good wishes,
