The Rector, The Rev. Simon Taylor, who is also now Area Dean, is delighted to announce that after a careful and prayer-filled interview process the Associate Minister post has been offered to and accepted by The Rev. Simon Willetts. Simon is currently Associate Minister at ChristChurch, Virginia Water. He and his wife, Naomi, will be moving into Mervil Bottom in the summer. He will be formally licensed and welcomed at a special service at St Peter’s on Sunday 15 September 2019 at 6pm with a reception afterwards at Clock Barn. We are obliged to point out that the appointment remains subject to clear DBS, medicals and paperwork.
This appointment would not have been possible without the overwhelming generosity and support of all those in our village community who responded to the fundraising campaign. At the recent Annual Church Meeting the Treasurer, Andrew Dunn, was delighted to announce that we hit the pledge target. If anyone would like to discuss their pledge, or if anyone has any questions about church finance, they should feel free to contact Andrew on 01428 482 113 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
