Appointment of Team Vicar

We are delighted to announce that, following interview and with the agreement of representatives of the Oakham Team Ministry (North) Parishes, Bishop Donald and Canon Lee Francis-Dehqani have invited the Reverend Deborah Marsh, currently Assistant Curate in the Living Brook Benefice, to become a Team Vicar within the Oakham Team Ministry, with responsibility for the parishes of Whissendine, Teigh, Ashwell and Market Overton.

Deborah has accepted this post and, subject to the normal Church of England legal and administrative procedures, she will be licensed by the Bishop of Brixworth to her new role on Sunday 4 February 2018 at 3:00pm at St Andrew’s, Whissendine.

Bishop Donald, Archdeacon Gordon and the Team Rector are very grateful to all who helped with the preparation of the profile for this post, all the arrangements for the interview day and for the continuing and encouraging ministry of these parishes in the service of Christ during this time. We ask for your prayers for Deborah and her husband Gary, as they prepare to move to Whissendine.

The Venerable Gordon Steele
Archdeacon of Oakham
