A very sad farewell was bid to our popular and hardworking Parish Secretary, Sue Holt, who has taken a post at Holy Trinity Church, Stratford on Avon.  We hope that she enjoys her new role at the Bard's Church.

In the meantime, Sue's departure has left a very large hole in the middle of the three parishes' administration and to remedy that, Churches of Arden are creating two new posts.  One is a part time Parish Secretary and the other is a Weddings Administrator.  Enquiries can be made in the first instance to Revd. Andy or to the Church Office (churchoffice@churchesofarden.org.uk).  Job Descriptions are available at all three churches or follow the link below.
