John Smith announcement
Rev’d Sarah Fitzgerald is taking early retirement later this year owing to ill health. We wish her and Richard well as they prepare to leave Marlow and start the next stage of their lives.
We will be welcoming back to our parish Rev'd John Smith, who served his curacy here from 2015 to 2018. Since 2018, John has served in France as part of the Marseille Chaplaincy but over recent months has felt the desire to return to this parish to serve again as part of the clergy team. We are very grateful to our bishop and archdeacon and to the Marseille chaplaincy for making this move possible.
John will be working as a part-time Team Vicar and a full member of the clergy team, primarily responsible for All Saints Bisham. He will be licensed on the 11th of September by Bishop Alan at Bisham in the morning service.
Some good news to end 2021 - since August when our Friends events started we have had over 300 people attend, from Lorraine Gills evening & art exhibition, Sheila’s history coffee mornings, our churchyard tidy up, and Marlow Riders cyclists coffee stops. We have raised nearly £1000 and increased our Friends members & Instagram followers - all great foundations for our 2022 programme - which you will find on our event pages - we look forward to seeing you, your family, and friends this year. Here’s to 2022!
