Rev Langstaff said: “I’ve had a great time in Norfolk. I’ve really enjoyed getting to know and working alongside the people here, not just in the churches but also in the wider communities.  There are some very good, hard-working, interesting and nice people in Norfolk and it’s been a real pleasure to get to know them.”

Rev Langstaff’s work covers the west and north of Norfolk as far Cromer.
