We have a new Vicar and his name is Rob McLaren, pictured above with his wife, Jean!  That, in a nutshell, is the main exciting news to share with you this month.  Jayne and I have had the privilege to be your representatives in this selection process and are delighted that Rob will be joining us at St. Luke’s.  Over the previous weeks we have been able to get to know Rob (and his wife Jean) and are very excited to be planning for their arrival later in the year.

Whilst Rob isn’t legally in post as our new Vicar until his installation and induction on 22 November, you may start to see him around the village. Jayne and I will be helping to get him up to speed and to meet more of the St Luke’s family and involve him as we begin our preparations for Autumn/Christmas activities.

If you see Rob or his wife Jean around Holmes Chapel,  please take a moment to introduce yourself and welcome them to our friendly village.

May the Lord continue to guide us all through 2019.

Thank you.

Alastair and Jayne (on behalf of the Wardens team)
