The Retirement of the Revd. Canon Cheryl Collins, Rector of St Gregory's Church
I am relieved to tell you that the Pensions Board has accepted my application for early retirement because of ill health. My last Sunday of public ministry will be September 5th. Tom’s last Sunday in Sudbury will be September 12th. However, Rev Chris Eyden will be supporting you through the period before your new priest arrives in the Spring. I know you will give him every assistance. I will still be in Sudbury until the house in Sheffield is ready for Mum and I to move into. Remember, although I will no longer be your parish priest, I will still be your friend. Please pray for me and I will pray for you, confident that God is even now preparing the right person to answer the call to come to Sudbury as your priest.
