First of all, I would like to express my sincere thanks for the wonderful welcome I received at the induction service on May 3rd. It was lovely to be greeted by so many friendly faces, and afterwards, to enjoy the wonderful hospitality of both churches. I don’t think I have ever seen so much cake! I am both excited and humbled by the opportunity to be vicar of All Saints and St. Mark’s, and am really looking forward to getting to know you all. I do enjoy a cup of tea and a chat; my usual working days will be Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Sunday. I am based at the vicarage in Weston where the kettle is always on, and the coffee machine primed and ready to go! Please do feel free to pop in and say hello, or to arrange a time to meet. I will also be out and about in both communities, and I hope to see you at one of our many groups, services or events taking place throughout the year.
