The Rev'd Anne Charlton

The Rev'd Anne Charlton

It is very sad and disappointing for the Benefice to annouce that our Priest in Charge the Rev'd Anne Charlton has resigned her post for health reasons. This has come as a great shock to her and to the rest of the Church. In effect the resignation is immeadiate because she has been on sick leave since the end of August, and sadly she will not be ministering to us anymore. She officially leaves post on November 18th. We wish her well in her recovery and in the future, whatever it is that God leads her into.

As far as the Church is concerned we now enter a period of uncertainty as we also do not know what the future holds. We do not know as yet whether Anne will be replaced with another Priest in Charge of the benefice, these decisions will be made at Diocescan level, but in the meantime we will continue to run the Church to the best of our ability. Services will continue to go ahead with the help of very kind Retired Priests and others though there may be some changes from the normal schedule due to unavailability. The 9.00 a.m Parish Communion at St Michael's on the fourth Sunday of the month is cancelled until further notice but there are no plans for any other cancellations.
