When are we getting a new vicar?

The announcement we’ve been waiting for:

It is with great pleasure that we can now announce that, subject to satisfactory clearance from DBS, our new Rector will be the Rev. James Packman who will come to us from St Albans Church, Frant & Holy Trinity Church, Eridge (on the edge of Tunbridge Wells).

Please join us praying for James and his family as he prepares to move here, his present Parishes as they come to terms with what his departure means to them and continue to pray for us at Holy Trinity as we prepare to welcome James and the rich ministry that he will bring to us.

As yet the date for James’s licensing is not fixed but we hope that it may be soon after Easter.




What happens until then? We are well led by our two Church Wardens, Pauline Daniels and Kath Markland. In turn, they are supported by our our Assistant Minister, Rev Trevor Dean, as well as our team of Readers (people licensed to lead and preach services), the PCC (trustees) and other volunteers. Not forgetting our office team who keep the administration side of things ticking over.

In the meantime, the day to day church events and services will continue. Our mission continues to be to Share Christ, Serve the community and Resource the wider church.
