The Late Revd Carol Langford


It is with great sadness that we pass on the news of Revd Carolís death on Easter Tuesday after her long illness. I know that with us your thoughts and prayers are with her husband Mark and their sons Dan and Tom in their tragic loss. Carol touched us all in different ways with her depth of faith, her commitment to Christís mission and her compassion for those in need. She will be greatly missed but we can draw comfort that she is with her beloved Saviour. May she rest in peace and rise in glory.

Rev Jenny, Rev Sandra & Canon Keith.
