TWO REVERENDS have today resigned from their posts at St John the Baptist Church in Cauldwell Hall Road, Ipswich.

An announcement from the office of the Bishop of St Edmundsbury said that Reverend Keith White, vicar of the church and Reverend Lynne Thorpe who was Ordained Local Minister and a parish link worker have both resigned with immediate effect for personal reasons.

No further reasons were offered for the sudden resignations but it is believed a statement was read out to the congregation at a service today informing parishioners of the departures.
