New Priest - in - Charge Appointed

This was announced on the Diocesan Website on Monday 16th November 2020.


After consultations between James, our Diocesan Bishop,  Norman, Bishop of Richborough,  the Archdeacon, and the the leadership of All Saints, Perry Street and S. John’s, Higham, Revd Canon James Southward has accepted  the Diocesan Bishop’s request to become Priest – in -  Charge of All Saints, continuing as Incumbent of Higham with Merston Parish.  


This will be effective from 3rd December when it is hoped, if lockdown restrictions are lifted, a Licensing Service will take place in All Saints on that morning.


More details in due course but your prayers would be greatly appreciated for this new venture in a shared ministry between us, under Bishop Norman’s pastoral care, in the weeks and months ahead.  


Fr James, Martin and Garth.
