Well loved Rector to Leave
It was announced at the services yesterday that the Rev Susan Clarke, Rector of Thornhill and Vicar of Whitley will leave her post in May this year. She is not moving to another Parish but is going to focus on spirituality.
In due course the process to find a successor will be put in place. The Parishes wish her well in her future calling.
Let there be Music Vacancies - please look at the Music Page for information about these jobs.
