The Induction of our New Rector

On Thursday 13th January 2022 at a service led by the Bishop of Taunton, Ruth Worsley and Archdeacon Simon Hill, Rev Christopher James Davis was inducted as the Rector of the Wulfric Benefice.

Christopher, more commonly know as “CJ” and his wife Mary, will be living in the Vicarage in North Street, Crewkerne. Following the retirement of Jonathan Morris, our new Rector will have the ultimate responsibility for all of the parishes within the Wulfric Benefice including Crewkerne, Hewish, Haselbury Plucknett, North Perrott, Misterton and Wayford. This is no small task and he will being supported by retired clergy, Church Wardens, members of the Parochial Church Councils and many other volunteers. We look forward to meeting him at regular community and worship gatherings around the Benefice and particularly those that take place in North Perrott.
