A message from Reverend Ann, posted 11 October 2020:

“On this, my last Sunday as a resident in our Benefice (before I move to Gloucestershire), I want to say au revoir and a big thank-you to you all. It has been my privilege to minister here for well over 20 years, and it has been one of the best things in my life. Thank you all for your love and trust. I will be coming back to see as many as I can of all the people I’ve got to know here over the last 37 years. And be assured that I won’t ever forget you and these wonderful villages: you will always be in my heart and my prayers”

God bless you. 

Love, Ann
