It was announced on Sunday morning (27th January) that Margot and Martin Hodson will be moving in the summer to West Oxfordshire to take up a new ministry.
Margot has been the vicar of Haddenham for the last ten years.
The Hodsons have been looking for a way to give more time to their environmental work while keeping their roots in local parish ministry. They will be moving to the Shill Valley and Broadshire Benefice, where Margot will be licensed as half-time Associate Minister in early September.
Alongside this post she will be taking up the part-time (self-supporting) role of Theology and Education Director for the John Ray Initiative (JRI).
There is more information about their move on their blog here.
