Farewell Revd Simon

After much prayer and discernment, our Team Rector, Canon Simon Stokes, has agreed to accept the post of Rector of St Margaret’s Lowestoft.  This means that Simon and Christine will be leaving Norwich, and their last Sunday is anticipated to be towards the end of January. Simon writes; “it is with great sadness that I leave you all, but with excitement to what God has called us to, for the next stage of our ministry. Please be assured of our ongoing prayers”.

Our prayers are with Simon and his family at this time, and we wish them well for the future. We’ll be saying farewell to Simon and Christine with a special service in January, more details to follow.

 

 

Protecting the vulnerable, whether adults or children, is a responsibility we take seriously.
