Three and a half years is not long to spend at a magnificent place like St Albans Cathedral, but it is long enough to know how much I will miss it. Here I have prayed and worked alongside a devoted congregation, an enormous team of dedicated volunteers, wonderful colleagues and I have made many friends.

God is now calling me to a new adventure in Sheffield and I take my experiences and learning from here as I return to the north. Most especially, I shall never forget journeying through these difficult months of pandemic with such amazing people committed to keeping prayer and worship alive here and I will pray for the continued thriving of this holy place.
