A New Rector

ANNOUNCEMENT OF A RECTOR

THE BENEFICE OF BACKWELL with CHELVEY & BROCKLEY

It is with great pleasure that we can now announce that, subject to a satisfactory DBS disclosure, our new Rector will be the Rev. Dr. Katy Garner who will come to us from West Meon, Petersfield. The interview panel were unanimous in their decision and were all impressed by what the Rev. Dr. Katy had to offer.

Whilst we, as a benefice, are delighted with the news we need to be aware that the Rev. Dr. Katy will be announcing her departure in West Meon today and the news there will be very differently received from here.

Please pray for the Rev. Dr. Katy as she prepares to move here, her present Parishes as they come to terms with what her departure means to them and continue to pray for this Benefice as we prepare to welcome the Rev. Dr. Katy and the rich ministry that she will bring to us.
