Rev Ian Thorpe

It is with great sadness that the congregation has arrived at the point where we are unable to support Rev and Mrs Thorpe financially beyond the next few months. Rev Thorpe will therefore be made redundant.. Ian will be a visible presence in the village for some time after that to visit, chat, and offer pastoral support, but in order to free him to be able to look for new employment elsewhere, he will conduct his last service at The Rock on Sunday 18th July.

It is envisaged that there will be a farewell party sometime in September.

Those of us who remain at The Rock will obviously feel this loss keenly, but we will be supporting each other as God’s family, seeking to serve and support the local community as best we can, and will continue to offer a warm welcome to anyone who would like to join us in what we see as a new adventure.While we seek the way forward, the pattern of our meetings may vary, so please see our notices published in this newsletter for details of our weekly activities, or phone Mary Phillips on 01494 874681 for more information.
