    The Rector's Retirement

    On Sunday 18th September, Chris officiated at St. John’s for the last time.  The service was followed by a farewell lunch in the Church Centre. For a report on proceedings, please click here.  You can also read the Rector's thank you letter

    We now start the process of finding a new incumbant. If you would like to know more about the process, you may be interested in this article from the churchwardens - How do we find a new Rector?
