New Vicar of Wantage
Reverend Philip Wells, currently Vicar of Lamorbey in Rochester Diocese and Area Dean of Sidcup has been appointed Vicar of Wantage and will be instituted in a service in Wantage Parish Church on Monday March 18th.
We welcome him and his family to our town and look forward to meeting with him in due course.
Incidentally, Keith will be preaching at both Holy Trinity and the Parish Church the day before on Sunday 17th March, and we hope that Fr Orazio may preach at our church before too long.
