We said a formal farewell to Rev Deb Smith on Sunday 22nd July at a very well attended and lovely service and lunch at All Saints Church.
Deb is now on leave preparing for her home move and taking up her new role as Team, Rector of Bridport on 18th September. This is when the Parish of Wyke Regis formally goes into a period known as interregnum. Details of the installation at Bridport will be posted when we have them so parishioners can attend if they wish to.
After the 18th September we will be able to advertise a vacancy in the parish and start the search for the next Rector.
It is hoped a new appointment will be made early in 2019 and the new Rector will be hopefully be in place around Easter 2019.
Until the appointment of the new Rector all parish wide matters should be referred to either:
PCC Acting Chair, Gary Hepburn 01305 778169, email , or
PCC Secretary, Lyndsay Wiles 01305 784649, email
Rev Betty Port and Licenced Lay Minister (LLM) Alan Macintosh will continue to lead on Ministry/Services, assisted by other locum ministers and they can all be contacted via Lyndsay and Gary.
Individual church matters should be directed to the relevant churchwardens:
St Edmunds – Mike Prince and Maxine Legg
