Those who have been involved in anything to do with St Mary's Church in Haddenham, St Nicholas in Cuddington, St Nicholas in Kingsey or St Michael's in Aston Sandford will have met and enjoyed the fellowship of local curate, Ian Herbert.
Many of us are saddened to learn that Ian will be leaving this Benefice early in the New Year, but the curate's role represents a training stage for newly ordained ministers within the Church of England as they look to become fully fledged vicars, and Ian's departure represents a natural step of development in his service to the Church.
Revd. Margot Hodson said this:
"I am very pleased to announce that the Revd Ian Herbert has been appointed Team Vicar with responsibility for All Saints Chafford Hundred in the Grays Thurrock Team Ministry."
I am sure you will join me in congratulations for Ian. Please do pray for Ian, Beccy and Sarah, Jess and Tom as they prepare to move to Essex in January and for Ian as he takes up his appointment.
We will miss him!"
Ian's last service will be on Sunday 10th January, in St Mary's church, Haddenham.
