The interregnum that began with the retirement of Rector Stuart Mitchell in May 2020, rather anticlimactically in the end because of the Covid lockdown, will end in January when our new Rector Mark Woodrow joins us in Clare.

Mark is currently Priest in Charge of Nayland Churches in the Dedham Vale, and Rural Dean of Hadleigh Deanery. Prior to moving to Nayland in 2016 he was Curate of Lavenham Church.

We look forward to welcoming him to our town, parish and benefice.
