Rev Hough steps down as chaplain

By Şirin Özkaynak

Archdeacon John Holdsworth announced Sunday May 6, that Ms Hough — who had been chaplain at the Girne church for four years — had stepped down with “immediate effect”.

The announcement follows a series of questions raised about the church’s accounting and administration procedures, starting with a wedding file that went missing from the vestry in December, as reported by Cyprus Today in March.

An investigation by the Anglican Diocese of Cyprus and the Gulf into the administration of weddings at the church was last week said to have revealed “a catalogue of errors”, but “no question about the validity of any wedding conducted”.

Ms Hough told Cyprus Today she had “loved being the chaplain”.
“I have met many amazing people, shared in lots of sadness, sorrows and challenging, as well as enriching times with people here.”
