A message from our Churchwardens - Good News! The long wait is finally over!

We are delighted to announce that the new vicar of Datchet and Colnbrook will be the Reverend Darcy Chesterfield-Terry. The Bishop is looking at a licensing date of Monday 25 February 2019.

Darcy was educated at Ditcham Park School, Stowe, Kingston University and Rippon College, Cuddesdon. Darcy’s curacy has been in the parish of St Mary’s Portsea within the Diocese of Portsmouth. Darcy is a baritone / bass singer who is comfortable with both traditional and modern music. He has acted in parish pantomimes, notably taking the role of a 6’4” ‘Little John”.

Our interview panel was impressed by Darcy’s warm, outgoing personality, his genuine sense of spirituality, and his enthusiasm and energy. The Head Master of Churchmead school said Darcy was extremely popular with his pupils on the interview day, when they were given the opportunity to ask each of our candidates questions in a ‘grill a vicar’ lesson. Darcy says reading our parish profile made him feel enthused and excited by the new chapter that awaits Datchet and Colnbrook

We look forward to warmly welcoming him and his family, as well as sharing the life of the two churches and  the communities they serve,  and working together.
