Appointment of New Priest for St John the Baptist Eltham

The Bishop of Southwark is glad to be able to announce the appointment of The Reverend Caroline Risdon to the parish of St. John the Baptist Eltham as Vicar Designate. Caroline has been serving as Curate and then assistant priest at St Alfege, Greenwich since 2014.

Subject to the satisfactory completion of the preliminary procedures and dependent on the guidance at the time in relation to the pandemic, it is hoped that Caroline will start ministry in Eltham in May 2021.

We wish Carolie and her family and the church Community and the parish of St John’s, God’s every blessing.

The Bishop and the Archdeacon of Lewisham & Greenwich would like to thank all who have contributed to us getting to this point! prayers for all you all.
