Canon Rodney Nicholson, vicar of St Paul’s Church, Low Moor, and priest-in-charge of Chatburn and Downham will hold his final farewell service before he retires at the end of the month at St Paul’s on Sunday, September 21st.

The popular clergyman became vicar of St Paul’s in October of 1989, before taking on the Chatburn and Downham churches and congregations in April 2003.

A tireless fundraiser, Canon Nicholson’s charity exploits have included walking 60 miles to coincide with his 60th birthday to raise money for Christian Aid.

Ordained in 1972, he was vicar at churches in Colne, Blackpool and Blackburn before coming to Clitheroe.
