At the beginning of May we welcomed Revd Carol Newborn to the Bridges Group at her Licensing. St Lawrence was full, as friends from her old church came to say farewell, as well as members of all our village churches. Carol came to help Revd Gillian as part of a 3 month sabbatical and she liked it so much she applied for the job!! Please give her a warm welcome when you see her out and about around the villages and we all look forward to her ministry in our villages. Carol’s role is a part time non-stipendiary covering the 6 churches in the Bridges Group.
We are also looking forward to welcoming Revd Celia Parkes, who is joining us in a few months, on a part time, House for Duty post . Celia used to be a shepherd on Exmoor, and is looking forward to rural ministry around our villages.
