Hello from the Lannons

Firstly, before we tell you all a little bit about ourselves, we would like to tell you how excited we are to be joining you and for Joe to become your new Rector.

Joe and Nikki have five children and two grandchildren between them. Mackenzie (Kenzie for short) our son is the youngest at 15 and still lives at home with us. Mackenzie is mad about football and plays in goal. He is a very outdoorsy kind of boy so you will be seeing him out and about in the village and surrounds when we move. The others are scattered from Plymouth, Oxford to Scotland. We love spending time with our grandchildren who are five and one years old, and on days off you can find us both creating songs for them and chasing them around in play parks.

Joe has been playing guitar since he was a boy and for many years was a guitar tutor and examiner. He has also been a Teacher, Baptist Minister and a Research Engineer. Nikki is an artist and singer, and together we write and perform both our own songs and covers in a duo called Sweet JoNi. We have also been worship leaders for many years. Nikki is currently attending Plymouth College of Art where she is taking a degree in Painting, Drawing and Printmaking. We are both creative and this creativity often comes through in the way we lead worship, prayer, retreat days and outreach. We have a passion for Mission and it is great to be coming to a Diocese and Cluster that values this so highly.

We look forward to joining you early in 2021 and can’t wait to see what God has in mind for us all.

Joe, Nikki and Kenzie
