Rev. Dr Ruth Hansford has been appointed as the Vicar and Ministry Area Leader in the Bro Ystumanner [pronounced ‘uh stee manner’] Ministry Area in the Diocese of Bangor in the Church in Wales. This is a group of six churches on the coast, north of Aberystwyth at the southern end of Snowdonia National Park. Ruth's last Sunday here will be February 11th 2018, when there will be a special service to celebrate her time here. Ruth and the family will be very sad to leave behind friends and colleagues in Devon, but are looking forward to the opportunities this new post brings.
Ruth is presently the Team Vicar of Hatherleigh, Meeth, Exbourne, Jacobstowe and Northlew in the Northmoor Team Ministry in the Diocese of Exeter.
We wish Ruth and her family every happiness in their new home.
