At the end of August, our parishes say goodbye to Rev'd Alison as she will be
broadening her experience by moving to a parish in Stone. It has been a joy to
have Rev'd Alison with us for the first part of her curacy, and we wish her
every blessing for the future. At the start of September, Rev'd Karen Petherick
will be arriving to have a second curacy with our parishes. She will be
full-time, and will be with us for about 18 months to two years. Please pray for
both Rev'd Alison and Rev'd Karen as they prepare for their new ministries.
