Alleluia! Christ is Risen!
Bishop John is delighted to announce that
Revd Simon Bray
has been appointed as the new priest-in-charge of the parishes of St Chad's, St Clement's and St Andrew's Bishopthorpe.
Simon will join us from his current position as the Archbishop's Domestic Chaplain.
This marks the next stage in the emerging partnership between the three churches.
Bishop John writes that Simon
'brings pastoral, preaching, administrative, leadership and musical gifts to the role. Above all he is passionate about local mission which is committed to realising our diocesan vision of living Christ's story by becoming more like Christ, reaching those we currently don't, growing churches of missionary disciples and transforming our finances and structures.'
Simon has said
'These are parishes I know and love, and I am looking forward to getting to know the three churches too, and to seeing how God will lead us in sharing his love and living Christ's story in our communities. Please pray for Nicola, the boys and I as we prepare to make the transition from my current role to this new adventure; I will be praying for all of us, that as we begin this new partnership God will give us faith, vision, and love for each other.'
Our current priest, John Day, will continue to work in the parishes, alongside Simon, in his current part-time capacity. He remains a member of the Archbishop's staff team.
We await news and dates for a Licensing service and Simon starting as the new full-time priest amongst us.
