One thought on “Curate to leave Lavenham following his new appointment

  1. The Reverend Mark Woodrow will need a curate of his own to cover the five churches and many communities under his care. I certainly pray for him, having had, in my last appointment before retiring, five churches, two of which were on islands in Moreton Bay, Queensland. I was blessed to have a curate and four retired clergy helping maintain services of worship. I also pray that Lavenham Church will have a capable curate appointed to replace Mark. In our Lord, the Reverend Dr John Spring, Melbourne
