A move, a retirement and a special rôle

The Revd Paul Davies moves in January from his post as senior priest at the Church of the Epiphany in Qatar, where he has served since 2015, to become priest in charge of All Saints Bedford and church growth officer for Bedford archdeaconry in the Diocese of St Albans. His final service in Doha will be on Friday 18 January 2019.

The Very Revd Chris Butt retires to Birmingham from his position as dean of St Christopher’s Cathedral, Manama, Bahrain at Easter 2019 after ministering there since 2009.

Finally, Bishop Michael has asked the Revd Charlotte Lloyd-Evans, currently at St Thomas Al Ain within the chaplaincy of Abu Dhabi, to take on the additional role of Warden of Readers in the diocese,  supporting and promoting Readers in their licensed public ministry and acting as a point of reference for clergy and laity in matters related to Reader ministry and Reader ministry training.

Please pray for them and also for Sally, Tricia, and Gareth and their families.
