Norwich vicar's Sprowston to Spalding move
2010: After nearly eight years as Vicar of Sprowston, John Bennett is moving to be Vicar of St Mary & St Nicolas and St Paul’s, Spalding. For the last five years he has also been Rural Dean of Norwich North.
He says, “I have enjoyed my time in Sprowston. It is a large and busy parish but I have worked with a good team of people here. I have appreciated the links that have been forged between the churches in this area.
"I am sorry that I shall not be here to see through “Heart for Sprowston”, our two year mission initative to show how the churches are at the heart of this community and the reasons why we have a heart for this place.
“Mary and I are looking forward to moving to Spalding. She grew up in Linconshire and she has family there. Our new parish has different challenges but there are many opportunities to share the gospel through a large church with many active members.”
John will start his new post on 25 March.
The Parish of Sprowston is now seeking a new vicar.
