to Christ Church, Duns
Vestry is very pleased to announce that the Reverend Christopher Jones is to be our new Priest-in-Charge with a start date in mid- to late April or early May. The actual date will be announced in the next week or so. Congratulations to everyone who has been so supportive and encouraging during the interregnum. The way we all worked together has been wonderful.
Chris and his wife Pauline will be visiting us on Thursday 10 January and all are welcome to come to the church from 10.00 am to meet them over coffee and cake. A lovely opportunity for us all to continue getting to know each other too. They will also be visiting the rectory on Friday 11 January to discuss any redecoration that needs to be organised by Vestry before they can move in.
All best wishes to everyone for the New Year 2019 from CCD Vestry.
