Institution of the Rector of Astbury

Dear Friends,

In normal times I would have been inviting you to a grand gathering in St Mary’s Church Astbury, this coming Thursday, 4th June, to celebrate the arrival of our new Rector, Rev Anne-Marie Naylor. But, sadly, these are not normal times.

Instead, I am inviting you to a Zoom webinar of Anne-Marie’s Institution by the Rt Rev Keith Sinclair, at 7.30 on the 4th. Please see the attached invitation. If you open the invitation on a computer or on your smartphone (if you have one – I don’t!) and then click the hyperlink in blue, you will be taken to a Diocesan web page where you can register to be a viewer on Thursday.

There is no need to reply to me (unless you have any queries), but I hope that you will register and be able to join us next week. Please forward this invitation to any who may be interested.
