Our Team Rector, the Rev’d David Newton, has been appointed by Bishop Dagmar as the new Diocesan Director of Ordinands for the Diocese of Ely. He will be leaving his role in the Team at the end of the year to take up his new position from January 2024.
David writes, ‘It has been a huge joy and honour to be part of the Lordsbridge Team for the last six and a bit years. I have loved playing my part in the ministry of the whole people of God in these parishes. From early on in my own vocational journey, I have felt called to the work of ministerial formation and theological education, and in my roles here I have always loved helping people discern and grow in their own vocations and giftings. In my new role I will take on responsibility for all candidates in the discernment process, and all ordinands training for ministry. I will miss you all hugely, and will be praying for the ongoing and exciting work of the church in our villages.’
David will be much missed across his parishes and the Team, and we send our prayers and blessings with him and his family as he moves onto his new role. David’s last service in the Team will be on Christmas Day.
