The Venerable Hugh McCurdy to step down as Archdeacon of Huntingdon and Wisbech

The Venerable Hugh McCurdy, currently Archdeacon of Huntingdon and Wisbech is stepping down on 18 April 2022, after 17 years in the role.

Hugh will continue to support the Diocese and the Bishops in leading the implementation of Living Ely 2025 and assisting the Market Towns Project (part of the CoE Strategic Development Funding) to flourish.

Hugh, will among other things, become Chair of Strategic implementation Group and be responsible for overseeing the integration of the Buildings Oversight Board and the Market Towns Board into the new Group.

Bishop Stephen writes: "Hugh is an accomplished and dedicated servant of the gospel as archdeacon.

I value our professional relationship and our personal friendship. I know that in this way I am in a large company.

It is because of this that I am delighted that as one blessed time of ministry for Hugh come to an end, more blessing is on the way as he moves to a new half time role among us for at least two years, keeping us to the implementation of our diocesan strategy.

He will also have more time to pursue his own interests".

Hugh will change roles on Easter Monday, 18th April. Bishop Dagmar is already working with others to draw up the role description for Hugh’s successor, so that the advert can be placed promptly, and the search begin.

Bishop Stephen adds:"I invite your prayers both for Hugh and Ruth and for those who will consider applying to be the next Archdeacon of Huntingdon and Wisbech".
