Welcome To Richard!

Home » News » Welcome To Richard!

Today, we welcome our new minister Rev. Richard Atkinson and family as they move into the Herston Close manse. We also wish Richard and his wife Louise advance congratulations on their 28th wedding anniversary they will celebrate tomorrow.

Welcome also to their son Ben and daughter Fran. Ben has a Masters degree in music and is starting a PGCE in September to become a fully qualified teacher. Meanwhile, Fran is due to start her final year of a Social Care degree in Cheltenham.

About ministry, Richard writes, "We are all on a journey, remembering key points from the past and hoping for significance looking into the future. I think this is a model which enables a cherishing of what has been, alongside an enthusiasm for what will be."
