Message from the Vicar

It is with mixed emotions that I will be leaving the Glastonbury with Meare Benefice and moving on to become Team Vicar of All Saints Church, Leighton Buzzard. My last Sunday will be the 18th August and we move later on that week. I will be licensed at All Saints Church on September 7th to which you are all welcome to join me on that day.

Thank you for your many kind messages over the last few days, they have been very heart-warming. The question that has been asked of me many times is, why do you want to leave? I have been your Vicar for the past 16 years and, over this time, have seen our family grow from children into young adults. As a family in Christ, we have had a lot of fun and have achieved many good things together, not to mention the re-ordering of two churches!

At the same time, this year, I reach a significant age and, we as a family, felt it was time for a fresh start and new challenges in our lives, it also feels the right time for a fresh pair of eyes to take this wonderful Benefice on into the next chapter of its life.

Glastonbury with Meare, will forever have a special place in our hearts, and I continue to thank you all for your love and prayers as we all prepare for this next phase in our lives.
God bless.
David
