Our new vicar
We are very pleased to welcome Dan Wells as our new vicar following his institution and induction at a special Service led by Archdeacon John Kiddle on 19 September. The Service was a wonderful mixture of the formal and the informal as Dan began his ministry in Richmond surrounded by family, friends from his previous church, HTR members, and representatives from other local churches and the Richmond community, including Mayor Ben Khosa.
John Kiddle acknowledged the huge impact of Trevor Patterson’s ministry as the previous vicar of HTR, and reflected on the very difficult year for our church following Trevor’s sudden death last autumn. He also expressed his thanks to all those who had played a part in sustaining HTR’s life and ministry over the last year, especially Alwyn and Kate Webb.
Please pray for Dan and Louise as they settle into life and church in Richmond, and for our church as we begin a new chapter, that we will be open to change, and wise in discerning what God is calling us to be and do.
