Moving on...

I can now break the strict code of secrecy which shrouds clergy appointments and announce that I am to be the next Rector of East and West Clandon in the Diocese of Guildford. They are two beautiful parishes about four miles from where we currently live. I think the diocese want us to be in place for Advent, and since developing work with the children and families of the parishes is an important priority, it seems wise to be up and running for Christmas. We'll miss St Nicolas' a great deal. St Nic's has changed so much over the last few years, and really has the opportunity to grow. So whilst it will be a shame to say goodbye, we feel as though we are moving on at the right point.

I wish you well.
The Clandons does feel a little like 'first prize', but if it is, richly deserved.
