In January, Rev Lee Townend announced that he has been offered and accepted a new post as Church Growth Officer in the Diocese of Derby. Lee and his wife Liz are likely to move to the Chesterfield area at Easter.
Lee said “It has taken a lot of prayer, soul searching and counsel to come to this decision. Both Liz and I feel strongly that the Lord is calling us to this new post.”
“We are incredibly sad to be leaving a people whom, and a place that we have come to love dearly, but we do believe this is God’s call, at this moment, in our lives. “
Lee has been Priest in Charge at All Saints since 2008 following his move from Maidstone in Kent.
Lee and Liz’s last Sunday with us will be April 15th.
