This announcement was made in all the churches across the Ministry Area this morning, prepared by our Ministry Area Leader, the Revd James Henley:
“Following a meeting with the Bishop, the Revd Graeme Carby, our Team Vicar, has officially informed me of his intention to retire at the end of June this year. The impact of Graeme’s ministry here for more than twenty years cannot be understated, and I am particularly grateful for his advice and support over the last few months since my licensing.
“There will be the opportunity to celebrate Graeme’s ministry and express our thanks to him properly before his time with us draws to a close, and plans for this will be announced in due time. In the meantime, please pray for Graeme as he makes the final preparations for his retirement over the coming months.”
