Appointment of Rector for Godstone & Blindley Heath United Benefice by the Bishop of Southwark

We are pleased to announce today, the 21 February 2016 that the Reverend Peter O’Connell, presently Curate in the benefice of Henfield, Woodmancote and Shermanbury in the Diocese of Chichester, has been presented by the Archbishop of Canterbury to be Rector of the Benefice of Godstone & Blindley Heath and appointed by the Bishop of Southwark, the Rt Revd Christopher Chessun.
It has been a pleasure having Peter, his wife Helen and their children Caleb, Lizzie and Alice as part of our church family for almost 4 years and we will certainly miss them all. Peter has been a great addition to our team and has very much enjoyed his time as our Curate.  Further details, including their leaving date and a date for the licensing service in Godstone parish church, will follow as soon as possible.
