Dear Friends,
I’m delighted to have been licenced as the interim priest-in-charge of
the Barrow benefice, and I’m looking forward to meeting you all!
Unfortunately, the virus intervened, thwarting my plans to move to Barrow,
and so I am still living in Sudbury. I have toured the benefice virtually via
video and phone calls, but it’s not quite the same as meeting you over a cup
of coffee! However despite that, I have sensed a very warm, friendly and
welcoming community. Take The Good Neighbours’ Scheme – what an
excellent example of people working together and caring for others in loving
service; this is very much how Jesus taught his disciples, and how, I pray, we
will continue in the future.I’m looking forward to meeting you, listening to your stories, finding out
what the needs are within the parishes, and establishing how best my ministry
can be used to help and grow our communities. Meanwhile, I wish you every
blessing and protection as we continue to face this difficult situation. Do feel
free to contact me if you would like to discuss anything, and please do stay
With love and prayers,

Rev’d Lynda
