Announcement from Rev’d Katrina Dykes:

It is with regret I am announcing that I will be leaving the Carlford Benefice in the New

Year to take up a post in Somerset.

Phil and I moved to Suffolk in 2021 expecting that we would establish new friendships and

stay here until I retired. I was looking forward to enabling the nine churches of this

benefice to come together around a common vision to serve their local communities and

to see them grow and flourish. Our hopes have been overtaken by the pressing needs of

our wider family.

For the last few months we have been prayerfully considering how we can effectively

support them from this great distance. An opportunity has arisen for me to take up a post

which will enable us to be nearer to our family members at this very difficult time, and

enable us to share with them the challenges that lie ahead.

I will be licensed to the benefice of Chew Valley South on 8th February 2024. My last

Sunday here will be 14th January.

Over the coming weeks I will talk more about what the upcoming vacancy will mean for

you, and to help you to prepare. Please pray for us as we will be praying for you in these

changing times.
