The benefice is currently in a vacancy, but looking forward to welcoming our new Rector, the Rev Dr Katy Garner in the summer (see news and events for a little more detail) . Meanwhile, we continue to be blessed to have the support of a Curate, two retired Priests, a Reader and a Lay Worship Assistant who are helping to fulfill of the roles normally shared with the Rector.
