Rev’d Chris Farewell

After 17 years as Team Rector, Rev’d. Christopher is retiring and will be moving out of Coltishall in the next couple of weeks. We gave him and Jenny a good send off at Horstead with a service in church and reception in the Tithe Barn afterwards.

He and Jenny were overwhelmed by the warmth and words of grateful parishioners and the generosity of the farewell gifts. Many thanks to those who gave so willingly and enabled this moving event.

What now? You can read about the arrangements for the vacancy in our new monthly Bulletin
