We will shortly be marking the end of Rev David Garratt’s 7 year ministry with us at Southover, in a service of celebration to be held at Southover on August 31st. Many of you will recall that he and Helen, Henry and Annie joined us in 2007 when he took up the post of Curate.
Following a very productive and successful curacy here we felt God leading us to include his gifts and calling in the next stage of our life at Southover. The post of Associate Vicar was created and David went on to lead the 11:15 service and has helped shape and influence many other ministries, including teaching and pastoral work.
David begins his new job as Chaplain at Bishop Bell School in Eastbourne in September and we are going to have a celebration lunch following the 10am service on 31st August. Bring your own picnic and we will provide tea, coffee & cake.
11:15 congregation please note that on Sunday 31st August the 11:15 service will be cancelled as we are all invited to join the 10am congregation in church for this united event
