It is with great regret that I am announcing my resignation from the post of Rector of the Raleigh Mission Community. As you are aware health issues have not allowed me to work full time since last September, and I feel it is better to resign now, before my sabbatical to enable the recruitment process to start immediately for a new Rector. I have given six months' notice to allow for the shortest possible interregnum. My final service will be a joint RMC harvest festival at St Peters on 8th October 2017. I would ask that you hold all the Raleigh Mission Community members in your prayers, particularly PCC members and Church Wardens, as they seek to discern a realistic way forward for managing the Community in a sustainable manner.
