It was announced at our services yesterday (17th March) that Rev Michelle Parton has been appointed as Associate Minister in the Culm Valley Mission Community in Devon, starting in September. Her Curacy at St Mary’s ends at the end of June. We will be very sad to see her leave St Mary’s but are excited for Michelle and the Parton family as they begin the next phase of their lives!
Michelle says: “I’m delighted to announce that (subject to the completion of the statutory formalities), I have been appointed as Associate Minister in the Culm Valley Mission Community in Devon. We will be living in the village of Kentisbeare, and I will have particular responsibility for the villages of Kentisbeare, Blackborough and Ashill. As a family we’re really looking forward to moving to Devon and getting stuck into village life. We’ll move in the summer holidays and my licensing is set for Wednesday 11th September. Please pray for us as we prepare to move, for the congregation of St Mary’s Wythall which I will be leaving on 30th June, and the congregations of the Culm Valley Mission Community as they prepare for me to arrive. Exciting times ahead! 🙂”
