It is with great pleasure that we announce the appointment of The Revd Tim Watson as our Leesland Pioneer Minister (subject to normal administrative legalities!).
Tim will be joined by his wife Clare and their two young daughters: Evie (6) and Lucie (3). Tim was ordained in 2011 and comes to us having established a new pioneering community in Nantwich, Crewe.
It is anticipated that Tim will be licensed to this parish and to Forton parish by Bishop Christopher just after Easter when we look forward to welcoming them.
Our Pioneering post is a permanent ‘vicar’ appointment and the family will make the vicarage in Carlton Way to be their new home.
Tim is passionate about writing, is a poet and performer – you can follow Tim and read his poetry and liturgical reflections on his beatliturgist blog.
Please pray for Tim, Clare and their family during these final months in Crewe and as they prepare for
their big move south. May they know every grace and happiness in Gosport.
