Official Announcement 15 November 2020:

We are delighted to announce the appointment of The Reverend Paul Irving to the post of Rector of the Benefice of Staplegrove with Norton Fitzwarren.

Paul is currently Team Vicar in the Parish of Redditch Holy Trinity and says: “I am thrilled at the appointment and looking forward very much to this exciting new chapter in life”.

A licensing date towards the end of February/beginning of March will be arranged in due course.

We hold Paul and Ami, their children, Harriet and Joseph, the parish of Redditch Holy Trinity and our parishes in our prayers at this time of transition.


We are relieved that the search for a new rector has been successful after the interview of candidates in early November; and we look forward to welcoming Paul and his family, most likely in early March. We thank the interviewing panel for their wise and calm deliberations; and also Chris Young and Felicity McGill, without whose tireless efforts, writing, editing and designing the Benefice Profile, we would not be in this happy position so soon after the advertisement went ‘live’ in mid-September.
