GOOD NEWS FOR OUR FUTURE AT STRATFORD!

 

We are delighted to announce that the Bishop has invited The Rev’d Sarah Wood-Roe to be the Associate Priest at

Salisbury St Francis & Stratford sub Castle.

 [Sarah is currently the Associate Priest in the Clarendon Team Ministry in Alderbury Deanery].

Sarah will have the prime responsibility for the community and congregation

at Stratford sub Castle. 

The appointment is subject to the usual statutory checks, and it is hoped that Sarah might be licensed around Advent Sunday this year. 

Please pray for Sarah, her husband Nick and their children Henry and Mary as they prepare for this new ministry.
