Despite the severe restrictions that are necessary in the fight against this dreadful virus, our new Vicar, Revd Jason Powell, was duly and legally sworn in and installed by the Bishop of Middleton and the Acting Archdeacon of Rochdale on Sunday 29th March 2020. The service took place online via the Zoom meeting tool, thought to be a first in the Diocese of Manchester. The digital service was attended and witnessed by the Area Dean of Rochdale, the Lay Chair of Rochdale Deanery Synod, and churchwardens from the three churches. Everyone in the benefice is delighted to welcome Jason and his family and we look forward to working with them for many years to come.
