St Ethelbert's, Alby people and services


During the interregnum we have not had a permanent priest but please see the following announcement for the Archdeacon of Lynn.

After a number of very positive conversations with your churchwardens and ministry team, I am delighted to tell you that we have appointed Canon Heather Butcher to the position of Interim Priest in Charge (part-time) for a period of three years.

You will have an experienced priest in Heather who has recently retired as Team Rector in the Launditch and The Upper Nar Team Ministry Benefice, was on Bishop’s Staff as Dean of Women’s Ministry and has ministered in other areas of the Diocese, as has her husband Revd Philip Butcher.

Heather and Philip look forward to this new phase of ministry and we hope to Licence and Install her in July. They will continue to live in their own home in Aylsham, some 3/4 miles from the benefice.

Revd Canon Heather Butcher is to be licensed by the new Bishop of Lynn and Installed by Archdeacon Ian Bentley to the Scarrowbeck Benefice on Friday 16th July at 6.00pm, in Erpingham church. All welcome.
