Rick Kevan Thank YouRev'd Richard Bunday and Rev'd Kevan Thorn - Thank You, Goodbye, Good Luck

Our vicar, Rev'd Richard (Rick) Bunday, and Associate Vicar Kevan Thorn, have both now left St Michael's Church, as of 13/04/2020. This brings to an end 10 years of their dedicated ministry, careful management and inspiring spiritual guidance.

They will be greatly missed, but leave with our grateful thanks, best wishes, and prayers, as they move on to the next stage of their journey in the service of others.

Rick's parting words sum up their joint approach to helping this church in the past decade, and we echo those words back to them both: "Go gently and allow others to shine brightly"
