WELCOME TO REVD CAROLINE RISDON
Thank you to everyone who made our new vicar’s institution and induction service such a success. We at St John’s welcome Caroline Risdon and pledge our continued support and co-operation as the church journeys through a new phase. We are very grateful to all those who have worked tirelessly behind the scenes within the parish and the deanery to bring Caroline’s appointment to fruition after a long interregnum.
