Archdeacon Paul Taylor was at chapter, the last run by Canon Tim West who has stepped down from being Rural Dean of Weymouth & Portland. His successor has yet to be appointed, so there's a holding role meanwhile.
Sarah Patterson was commissioned as Headteacher of St Andrew's School, which has been recognised by Ofsted as gaining a momentum for improvement. It has joined the Diocese of Salisbury Academy Trust, along with St John's, and Beechcroft.
Clergy visit all schools in the team area, and take part in worship at All Saints Secondary School. Each has its own character, and are seen to be of equal value as vital parts of our community. Lets hope teaching and support staff, governors and volunteers have a really good rest this month.
