The Right Revd Martin Seeley, the Bishop of St Edmundsbury and Ipswich, is delighted to announce that the next Rector of Yoxmere will be The Revd Tim Rogers. Tim is presently Assistant Curate in the benefice of Redenhall and Scole in the Norwich Diocese. This is subject to the completion of legal formalities and when those matters have been completed we will be able to announce a date for Tim’s Institution and Induction service.
The Bishop has asked me to pass on his thanks to the parish representatives and all those involved in the process of Tim’s appointment, and he assures you of his prayers. Please pray for Tim, his wife Sarah and their children as they prepare for their move.
Tim has asked to let everyone know that he is very grateful for the warmth of welcome that he received over the visiting and interview process, and that he is very much looking forward to working with you.

Simon Knott (www.suffolkchurches.co.uk/darsham.htm) wrote of Darsham Church "I had left it a long time to come back to Darsham ....... I stepped into a Church which felt bright and alive, full of light ....... the walls were immaculate. This was a Church which had been very much loved and cared for ......"
The Chancel door curtain, made recently by ladies of the village for the Harvest Skills Festival, shows twelve village scenes which were produced using original photographs from the local archive. These may be viewed by clicking here, or on the link in the sidebar.
The Parish Church is used for a wide variety of services at which both traditional and modern liturgies are used. The Church of All Saints's pattern of services forms part of the overall offering of worship within the eight parishes of the Confederation. Many events take place which draw considerable public support.
All Church activities are scheduled in the Parish Magazine called ' The Yoxmere Fisherman,' copies of which are available free in Church.
Copies of the Darsham Local History Trilogy are available to be purchased. Further details about these, and how to order can be obtained via the link on the sidebar.
