We are delighted to announce that, following interview and with the agreement of Bishop Donald and the parish representatives, the Reverend Roger Woods, currently Team Vicar in the parishes of Leek & Meerbrook in the Diocese of Lichfield, has been offered and has accepted the invitation to become Vicar of the Church on the Heath and Diocesan Urban Support Officer.
This appointment is subject to the normal Church of England legal and administrative procedures. A date for the licensing will be announced in due course.
Bishop Donald and Archdeacon Richard are very grateful to all who helped with the preparation of the benefice profile, all the arrangements for the interview day and for the continuing and encouraging ministry of the parish in the service of Christ during the vacancy. We ask for your prayers for Roger and Sue, his wife, as they prepare for their move to Northampton.
