Please see below the announcement from Bishop Karen

I am pleased to say that the following announcement can be made in the benefice this Sunday:
‘The Patron, Richard Drax, and the Bishop of Sherborne are delighted to announce the appointment of the Revd Jane Williams as Vicar of the Redpost Benefice. Jane is currently Rector of the Bride Valley, in West Dorset, she served her curacy in Wareham, and prior to training for ordination she had a career in the Health service. Jane brings much experience to the post including developing leadership, schools work and outreach. She has a heart for rural ministry and looks forward to moving to Sturminster Marshall with her husband Nigel sometime in the summer. Jane’s Institution, induction and installation as Vicar will take place at 7pm on 7th September. The Patron and Bishop wish to thank all those managing the vacancy and who were involved in the appointment process.’
Thank you
