On Sunday 29th January St Martin’s Church, Bladon, bade farewell to their distinguished Director of Music, John Cullen MA MusB FRCO. John has served St Martin’s, and, from time to time, St Mary Magdalene’s in Woodstock, coming to live in Woodstock eleven years ago.
John has had a distinguished career in teaching and performing, latterly at Abingdon and Tonbridge Schools. For a village church in Oxfordshire to have benefited from the gifts of so talented a musician has been a blessing, and we will all miss his enormous contribution to our life and worship.
St Mary Magdalene’s in Woodstock is to enjoy John and Mary being part of the worshipping family in the months and years to come; so they will not be too far away. We give thanks to God for them both, and pray that the coming years will be full of joy.
