REVD. MARK HURLEY LICENSED AS PRIEST-IN-CHARGE
We are delighted to announce that Revd. Mark Hurley has been licensed as Priest-in-Charge of the Benefice of Bishops Lydeard with Lydeard St. Lawrence, Bagborough, Combe Florey and Cothelstone. The licensing service, which was carried out by Rt Revd. Peter Hancock, Bishop of Bath and Wells, took place via Zoom. We warmly welcome Mark and Barbara to our beautiful Benefice and pray that they will find joy, peace and fulfillment in their new home and ministry.
A formal celebration in church will take place when Covid 19 restrictions are relaxed sufficiently to permit this, at which time Mark will become Rector of the Benefice. Meanwhile, he will be known as Priest-in-Charge. The order of service for the licensing ceremony may be found here.
