Farewell Bishop John

After 11 years as Bishop of Chichester, The Rt Rev’d John Hind has retired. We were privileged at Henfield to host one of Bishop John’s final services, when he spoke on the Prayer of St Richard of Chichester.

Rev’d Angela’s Desert Island Discs

We know Angela won’t be with us much longer in Henfield, but before she does leave, one of the things she will be doing is a Desert Island Discs evening with us.

What will Angela’s musical influences and choices be? The Beatles? Palestrina? Tiger feet?

Come along and hear some of her story, told along with musical accompaniment, on Thursday 8 March, at 8pm, in St. Peter’s Henfield.

 

Angela’s new appointment

After 3½ years with us at Henfield, our curate Angela Martin is to take up her new post.

The Rev'd Angela Martin

Angela is to be the new Assistant Rector in the parish of Worth on the eastern side of Crawley, working with The Rev’d Canon Anthony Ball. The parish covers the neighbourhoods of Worth, Poundhill and Maidenbower, and is close to the main railway station at Three Bridges.

Angel writes:…

I am very pleased to announce that I will be joining Revd Canon Anthony Ball, Rector of Worth Parish as Assistant Rector serving in Worth, Pound Hill and Maidenbower, Crawley.

Worth is the largest of four parishes in the Crawley area with some 33,000 souls and rising! So plenty of work to be getting on with and lots of people to talk to! We will be living at St Barnabas Vicarage in Pound Hill and we are all looking forward to making our new home there. My last Sunday in the Benefice will be the 18th of March 2012 and I will be licensed to Worth in April on the 17th at 7.30pm. It would be lovely to see you there.

The family and I have thoroughly enjoyed our time here in the Benefice and we will miss you all very much. I’d like to take this opportunity to say a BIG thank you to each and every one of you for your support and kindness over the last three and a half years. I will always hold you in my prayers.

Whilst we will be very sorry to lose her, we knew Angela’s time with us would be finite, and she would only be with us whilst she was training, and that she would move on to a new parish at some point. We will miss her; her smile, her laugh, and so much more beside – she and Gareth, and Hywie, Rhodri and Elliot have been an important part of Henfield life. We wish them our prayers and our blessings as they prepare to move.

Angela’s last day in the Henfield benefice will be Mothering Sunday, 18 March 2012, and her licensing in the new parish will be on 17 April 2012.
