‘Appointment of Priest in Charge’
“We are delighted to announce that, following interview and with the unanimous approval of the parish representatives and the support of the representative of the Patron (Boughton Estates Limited), the Reverend Rob Parker-McGee has accepted Bishop Donald’s invitation to become Priest in Charge of the Benefice of Geddington & Weekley.
Subject to the normal Church of England legal and administrative procedures, Rob will be licensed in St Mary Magdalene, Geddington on Sunday 12 January at 3 pm.”
Bishop Donald and Archdeacon Gordon are very grateful to all who helped with the preparation of the benefice profile, all the arrangements for the interview day and for the continuing and encouraging ministry of the parishes in the service of Christ during the vacancy. We ask for your prayers for Rob and Sarah and their family as they prepare for their move to this diocese.
The Venerable Gordon Steele
Archdeacon of Oakham
It will be nine months since Canon Giles Godber left Geddington, a much shorter interregnum than the previous one, but the team that were put in charge for this period, look forward to welcoming Father Rob.
