After nearly four years as Associate Priest in this Benefice, Debbie is moving onto a new post. She has been offered and has accepted the position of Rector of Holy Trinity and St Barnabas Paisley with The Church of the Good Shepherd in the Scottish Episcopal Diocese of Glasgow and Galloway. This is a major move for Debbie and we congratulate her on her appointment.
This is sad news for us in the Benifice and particularly for us at St Johnís and we will miss Debbie very much but this is an exciting new chapter for Debbie as she takes on this big new job and moves to a new country.
Dates for the move are yet to be confirmed but Debbieís last Sunday in the Benefice is likely to be late June or early July and a special Benefice service will be planned. More details to follow soon.
We pray for Debbie as she prepares for the move and we give thanks for all she has given to St Johnís and for the great love, kindness and care she has shared with us all.
Revd Becky Bevan
Vicar of St George and St John Newbury
