New Priest-in-Charge

At a very well-attended service on 15th June at St James' Church, Swimbridge, Revd Cathy Scoffield was installed as our new Priest-in-Charge.

It was estimated that as many as 185 people were in the church to witness the Bishop of Crediton, the Rt Revd Jackie Searle, install Cathy and also to give a fine sermon. The choir of West Buckland School played an important part in the proceedings.

Cathy then took her first service at St Paul's on 18th June and it was a very enjoyable occasion. Afterwards, she was presented with gifts, including a large planted hanging basket, by our churchwardens, Hazel and Mike. A photograph appears on this page.

We also congratulate Cathy on being installed as a Prebendary of Exeter Cathedral at a service there on 27th June 2023.

There are many, including those unable to attend her installation, who wish Cathy every success in her new ministry.
