Church of England Diocese of Chester Swettenham

Revd Anne-Marie Naylor moves on

3 Jun 2020, 8:30 p.m.

The pre-recorded service started with views of Capesthorne Hall's gardens then moved to Siddington Church with our vicar, Revd Ian Arch, and Anne-Marie keeping social distance within the space. 

Part 1 of the service can be seen by clicking here.

Anne-Marie wrote and sang a wonderful song all about the villages that are served by the five churches of the group, and Capesthorne chapel. It is hoped that a potential new curate will be inspired to take her place before too long. 

Anne-Marie's song is on YouTube.

After the recorded service, we moved to Zoom so that we could all share sparking drinks and cake, online. This second part of the service can be seen here

We all thank Anne-Marie for her contribution to the life of the churches and communities of Rural Daneside. Our very best wishes go with her as she takes up the joint post of Rector of Astbury and Vicar of Smallwood. So she has moved, but not very far.
