Father John Ryder announces his retirement

In a post on the All Saints Parish Church website, Father John Ryder has announced that he is to retire at the end of February.

“Dear Friends

It is with great sadness that I write to let you know that I have decided to retire. We have lived here longer than we have ever lived anywhere else, and it will be a great wrench to leave you, these churches and the island. We will be moving to be closer to the hospitals we need to attend, and to our children.

A PCC meeting will soon be arranged to meet with the Archdeacon to plan for the interregnum. My last service will be on Sunday 23rd February.

Yours in Christ

Fr John & Brenda”
