Clergy Comings and Goings in October

Male cleric and female deaconess are stood smiling in clerical robes

Margaret Brierly, a Deaconess in Thame from 1995-2001, before women were allowed to be ordained, worked long hours, unpaid. She died in October. We remember with gratitude those who went before us. The photograph shows her with her husband when he was Vicar of Tetsworth.

The Revd Timothy Wood retired from the post of Associate Minister, Walbury Beacon; the Revd Guy Cole was appointed Team Rector, Leominster in the Diocese of Hereford; the Revd Suzanne Knight was appointed Associate Vicar, St Agnes with St Paul and St Barnabas; the Revd Catharine Mabuza was appointed Area Dean, Bracknell; the Revd David Brown was appointed Associate Area Dean, Bracknell; the Revd Naomi Hill was appointed Associate Vicar, St Paul’s, Slough; the Revd Simon Cronk resigned from the post of Area Dean of Aston and Cuddesdon; the Revd Dr Judith Ryder was appointed Associate Minister, Bicester with Bucknell, Caversfield and Launton; the Revd Nicholas Weldon was appointed Priest in Charge, Marcham with Garford and Shippon.

We were sad to hear of the death of the Revd Canon Trevor Maines.
