St James’, Ludgershall and Faberstown
“Subject to the usual clearances, the Interview Panel is pleased to announce the appointment of the Reverend Claire Maxim to the post of Priest-in-Charge (Rector Designate) of Ludgershall and Faberstown in the Diocese of Salisbury. Although moving dates and Licensing dates are yet to be confirmed, Claire hopes very much to be in time to join the parish for the journey through Lent to Easter 2014.”
As you might guess, I am very excited about this and looking forward to becoming part of a community which felt very friendly every time I visited (including by stealth!). I’ve been looking forward to being a proper-growed-up-Vicar for some years now, and even though I’ll have missed the mark (it’s Rector here, something to do with being entitled to receive tithes before they were abolished in 1936) I am distinctly chuffed. However, I and the Rev’d Claire Family are going to need a lot of prayers, and so are the good folk of Ludgershall and Faberstown – please remember them and me.
