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.
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”
