Special Announcement - Appointment of New Rector
The PCC is pleased to inform you that after nearly a year in
Vacancy, a new incumbent, the Reverend Harry Latham, has been appointed to the
United Benefice of Headley and Box Hill with Walton-on-the Hill.
Harry is at present employed as Vicar of Stoke Poges in Buckinghamshire.
A proposed date for the institution of our new Rector has still to be agreed and we will inform you of this as soon as possible.
We would like to thank you all for your prayers and patience during this time and also to thank the many visiting priests who have led and supported our services during the Vacancy.
We look forward to welcoming Harry, his wife Tracy, and their children, for what we hope will be an exciting future for both parishes.
