Welcome to our new priest in charge!
We are delighted to be able to announce the appointment of our new priest in charge who will be the Reverend Glynn Lautenbach.
Glynn was chosen by the interview panel from the four candidates invited to this stage of the application process. Some of you will have already met her at the church family tea that we held on the day before the interviews, or maybe bumped into her at Cafe B or St Mary's School on the interview day.
Please put 7.30 pm on 10 January 2017 in your diaries as the date for Glynn's licensing service. In the meantime please thank God for the prospect of exciting times ahead, and continue to pray for Glynn and her family as she prepares to move.
We must stress that this appointment is subject to receiving satisfactory DBS clearance. We have received a previous check and Bishop-to-Bishop references confirming that there are no concerns. However, we do need to wait for the formal paperwork, and until such a time as this is received, the offer of appointment is conditional.
For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” (Jeremiah 11:29)
