IT'S amazing what you can get on the Internet these days. In the case of Godmanchester's new priest-in-charge, the Rev David Busk, it was a job.
Mr Busk had been in Japan for 12 years, where he was Vicar of Holy Trinity Church, Nagasaki, in Japan.
"We decided three years ago we wanted to move to Britain, but we only looked at jobs where churches had good websites," he said. "That's how I found Godmanchester. It seems a remarkable church."
After three years teaching English, Mr Busk, 45, went to college before becoming a curate at Oldswinford, in the West Midlands. He moved to work in Japan, where he met his wife, Yoko. They have two children - Simon, three, and Karin, 18 months.
