Announcement of the appointment to the post of Team Vicar in the Marden Vale Benefice

The Bishop of Ramsbury is pleased to announce that he has appointed the Revd Sarah Errington to be Team Vicar in the Marden Vale Benefice. Please pray for Sarah and her family as they prepare to move to the Vicarage in Derry Hill. Sarah will be licensed by Bishop Stepen on 16th June at Christ Church Derry Hill.

Caspar adds:
I'm really delighted about this appointment. Sarah brings a great deal of relevant experience to this role, a real passion for growing the church, and proven staying power! At the moment she is serving in Wrexham, part of the Church in Wales Anglican Province, though she was in Liverpool Diocese before that. She will be writing a piece to introduce herself to us before too long. We expect her and her family to be moving down to Wiltshire in late May, and her licensing service to be at some point in June.

Teresa Michaux has decided to retire from her post as Team Vicar.  Her last Sunday will be 7th April.  We wish her well as she prepares for this change.
