I am going to retire from Parish Ministry on 27 th August 2021.
It has been a real joy and privilege to serve the congregation and parish of Forth St Paul’s for almost five years. I want to assure you all that I am not leaving Forth St Paul’s to serve at another church. I am retiring from full time work since I will be 66 in August.
This month I will have been working for 44 years, having begun my working life as a vet in June 1977, and then changing career to parish ministry with my ordination in July 2011.
I pray that you will all continue to grow in your faith, be faithful always in prayer, and continue to show the gentleness of the Holy Spirit, the compassion of Jesus, and love of God, to one another and to everyone in the parish and beyond.
Love, prayers and blessings,
