Welcome to the 4Parishes Website
Please note the following message from our Rector Peter Dowman:
To the congregations of the 4Parishes
I have been unable to perform my duties since the beginning of May.
I would like to say three things:
My faith and confidence in God remains absolutely firm. I continue to pray for your journeys of faith and Christian discipleship and pray too that more parishioners will join us in the church.
I have felt increasingly overwhelmed by the responsibilities of leading the 4Parishes. Indeed I feel burned out. I have not been able to deal with some individuals and situations as I would have wanted to.
A long list of physical difficulties plus this burn-out have combined to oblige me to seek early retirement on grounds of ill-health. (I am 62, 'normal' clergy retirement is now 68). I have completed 30 years service since I was ordained.
It is unlikely that I will return to work and my final service will be a 4Parish All-age Communion on Sunday 23 November at Warboys at 10am.
Since arriving before Easter in 2003 Heather and I (for ours has always been a joint calling) have always tried our best, with the help of many others, to serve you faithfully and without holding back. Thank you for responding - under God much has been achieved. However much also remains to be done.
We have already started to pray that the person of God's calling will be appointed in due course to lead the 4Parishes forward. It will be a privilege and delight for them as it has been for me.
With love and prayers
