Thanks expressed to retiring Executive Committee members

28-Sep-2015 Two long-serving members of The College of Preachers' Executive Committee have decided to stand down and not seek re-election. They are Christopher Burkett and Barry Overend.

Rev. Canon Dr. Christopher Burkett (pictured, at The Hayes Conference Centre in Swanwick) is Director of Ministry for the (Anglican) Diocese of Chester.  In addition to serving the College as a member of the Executive Committee, Christopher is also Editor of The Preacher - a task that we're delighted to announce he is continuing with for the time being.

Rev. Barry Overend was a parish priest when he first joined the College's Executive Committee, but recently retired.  Barry continues as a tutor for the College.

At the College's 2015 AGM held on 24th September at The Hayes, Christopher and Barry were thanked for their long years of service to the College in this capacity. We wish them both well for the future.
