New Cyprus archdeacon announced, and new social concern coordinator

The next Archdeacon in Cyprus and parish priest of St Helena Larnaca will be the Venerable Christopher Futcher. Known to many already from his visits to diocesan synod over the last few years, Christopher is at present Archdeacon of Exeter in our link diocese in England.

Anne Futcher is also a priest, currently in the small Devon town of Colyton. She will be non-stipendiary assistant priest at St Helena’s and archdeaconry social concern officer, following in the footsteps of the Reverend Christine Goldsmith who pioneered the coordination of work with refugees and migrants on the island.

Christopher and Anne will move to Cyprus during the summer. Bishop Michael expects to inaugurate their ministries at St Helena Larnaca on Saturday 7 September. Pray for them as they prepare for the next stage in their ministries and lives.
