Announcement from our Church Wardens

The Church Wardens have asked that a statement from Bishop David be sent to all members of the congregation at St John’s Church.

“On Tuesday 24th March we met with Bishop David.  From this meeting Bishop David has requested that the following announcement is made.

Statement from the Bishop
The Bishop of Ely is pleased to announce that the Crown have confirmed the appointment of the Revd Nigel di Castiglione as Team Rector of the Papworth Team Ministry. Nigel is Vicar of St John the Baptist, Harborne Heath, in the Diocese of Birmingham. His licensing date will be announced in due course.

It is likely that the licensing will be in the early autumn. This will be dependent on the readiness of the Parsonage house in Papworth. Once the licensing date is announced by the Bishop of Ely, the Vicar will resign from the living of St John’s and the recruitment process for a new vicar will begin.

“This statement will be read out at all services on Sunday 29th March.”
