The Bishop’s Announcement

The Reverend Robert Sutherland, currently Assistant Curate, Morley Team Parish to be Vicar of Illingworth and Mixenden.

Details of Robb’s installation and induction will be announced at a later date.

In many ways this past week and today have been a bit of a blur.  The announcement was made by the church warden this morning and I am a little overwhelmed by the support that everyone has shown Ruth and me.  We have loved being part of the community here in Morley throughout my curacy and we are ever thankful for the immense love and support that we have been shown.

I’m looking forward to the challenges of my new role as we become part of the community in north Halifax.
