Judy Miller lives in Wenhaston and works full time for the NHS.  She has served as a priest in Beccles and before that in Blyth Valley Team.  In the last three or four years her full time job has taken up most of her time and she has not had any opportunity to serve as a priest.  While still very busy, she has become a fairly regular worshipper in Walberswick and Reydon over the past three years.  About six months ago she felt that her job had settled down sufficiently for her to consider offering some time in priestly ministry.  Having discussed this carefully together Judy has offered one Sunday a month in Sole Bay plus some holiday cover.  As she is known in Reydon and Walberswick most of her Sundays with us will initially be in those two churches, but perhaps with time she might be able to increase the help she can offer to us.  She is being licensed to Sole Bay Team at Evensong in Walberswick on 14th October at 6pm when Archdeacon Ian will be preaching and leading the licensing part of the service.  I hope people will come to support Judy.
