Since our last Priest-in-Charge left in February 2013, we have been blest with a succession of locums, that is, priests who come for anything between 3 weeks and 3 months, lead our worship, inspire us with their sermons, care for those in need and generally make an important contribution to the spiritual life of St. Alban’s .
We are very grateful to our resident clergy, the Revd John Murray and the Revd Christine Bloomfield, who undertake locum duties themselves and, very importantly, support those locums who are new to St. Alban’s. Our Reader, David Cowley, is another pillar of strength and leads the Early Call Prayer Breakfasts on the third Sunday of the month. And we always appreciate the ministry of Bishop Venuste whenever his arduous work schedule makes that possible.
Christine Bloomfield has generously agreed to act as locum from January through Easter 2016.
Roger Wikeley will be with us again (for the fourth time!) from the 1st of April through May 22.
John Murray will take the service on May 29th.
Christopher Martin, who used to be priest in Lyon, will be with us for all of June and July.
John Murray will again cover August and September.
We’re very grateful to all our priests and hope very much that by the fall we may welcome a new priest in charge.
