Appointment of New Rector - 16th May, 2018

 

We are pleased to announce the appointment of our new Rector, the Rev John Armstrong who will join us from St Andrew's Church, Over Hulton after an 11 year stint as the vicar there.

 

Rev Armstrong, his wife Helen and their three children will be joining us some time after Easter and we are, of course incredibly excited, but we're also conscious that the members of his current Parish will be extermely saddened at his departure.

 

Rev Armstrong has been quoted in 'The Bolton News' as saying "This will be a new challenge, but one I feel God has laid upon me.

 

We look forward to him joining the team here in Wombwell. The Induction Service will be held at 7.30 pm on Wednesday 16th May, 2018 in St Mary's - Please come early to get a seat!

Easter is being celebrated at St Mary's with a communion Service led by the Rev R Evans. The service will have Children's Club activities and we also look forwrd to welcoming the children returning their rocks representing the stone rolled away at the tomb which they have found around Wombwell over the past week.

 

We also welcome St George's Church Family who are to join us in our Easter Celebration.
