Appointment of a new Priest in Charge

The appointment of the Revd Ruth Colby as Priest in Charge of the Fosse Group of Parishes has been announced. She will be the successor to the Revd Oliver Learmont who moved on to a new post last July.

The Revd  Colby is currently Assistant Curate in the Benefice of Rothwell with Orton and Rushton with Glendon and Pipewell and Loddington and Thorpe Manor, a group of parishes near to Kettering in the Diocese of Peterborough. The licensing date is yet to be announced.

The Revd Canon Phil Williams has been appointed as the new Archdeacon of Nottingham. The position was left vacant when the previous holder, The Venerable Sarah Clark, was appointed as Bishop of Jarrow. Phil, currently the Associate Archdeacon for Transition Ministry, will take up his new post in July but will retain the responsibilities of his current post. This is good news for us in the Fosse Group of Parishes as we have been working closely with Phil in the appointment process of a new Priest in Charge.
