An announcement was made yesterday, at our Sunday services, concerning the interviews which were held to choose a new incumbent for the Benefice of St Mary Magdalene Church and St John’s Church. The panel was unanimous in the choice of one of the candidates. The chosen person has accepted and now has to be formally offered the post. Because the vacancy has been more than 9 months the formal offer comes from the Archbishop of Canterbury rather than the Diocesan Bishop. Once the formal offer has been made and accepted we will be able to make a full announcement.
