Announcement made by Revd Dr Donald McFadyen at the 4pm Benefice Service on Sunday 29th October 2023 at St Andrew’s Church, Cotterstock
I’m writing to let you know that I have been appointed Chaplain to the English-speaking Church of Fontainebleau, near Paris, where I will also continue my teaching role with the Eastern Region Ministry Course.
I will be therefore be leaving the Warmington Benefice.
I share this news with mixed feelings. Whilst I’m very excited about this new ministry opportunity, and have a strong sense of God calling me to it, at the same time I am sad to be saying goodbye to such a lovely bunch of people in this benefice.
My last day of services in the benefice will be Christmas Day.
I will be meeting with the Churchwardens and Rural Dean, Revd Eddie Smith, in a couple of weeks’ time to make plans for the parishes in the vacancy.
I have felt privileged to serve as your vicar, and will continue to pray for you. In turn, I ask that you pray for me and Netta.
With best wishes,
Rev'd Dr Donald McFadyen
Vicar of Warmington Benefice
