Most of you will probably already be aware that David Knight, who has been our Organist and Choirmaster since July 2004, has decided that, because of family commitments and increased travelling time from his home, he is no longer able to give the time and commitment he would wish to the role of Organist and Choirmaster, and so has tendered his resignation. His last Sunday will be Sunday 4 January, and we hope that as many members of the congregation as possible will be able to be in church to help us express our appreciation of everything that David has achieved over his 10 and a half years’ service, and to wish him and his family well in the future. David and Ruth were married in Crown Court and their son Samuel was baptised here, so we very much hope that Ruth and Samuel will also be present on 4 January.
We are anxious to find a new Organist as soon as possible, so the post has been advertised, and we are currently in the process of interviewing candidates. We very much hope that it will be possible to make an appointment fairly early in the New Year.
