Message from Jane 

After Easter I shall be starting a period of Extended Ministerial Development Leave. This means I shall be away from the parish from the 8th April until 10th July. The Diocese offer EMDL to around 6 clergy per year and I am very grateful that I have been offered this opportunity. I will be using my time to visit churches in Edinburgh, New York, Quebec and Washington DC to see how they work and to see how they have changed and adapted to serve the needs of the communities where they are. Whilst I am away Rev’d Katy (with support from Rev’d Lionel) will take the main responsibility for worship and pastoral care. I am very grateful to her and to the churchwardens and PCC’s of Langrish and East Meon for their help and support in enabling me to be able to take this opportunity.

Rev’d Jane
