The Parish Church Council is delighted to say that the Wardens of the two parishes have been authorised to announce that:

Subject to the required safeguarding checks, the Bishop of Lichfield has appointed the Revd. Tim Watson, currently Leesland Pioneer Minister in the Diocese of Portsmouth to be the next Vicar of Madeley and Betley. We hope for a licensing by the Bishop of Lichfield early in the New Year. Please pray for Tim, his wife Clare and their 3 children.

Tim writes: 'Greetings from Gosport on the South coast! I'm delighted to take up the post of vicar of All Saints' Madeley and St Margaret's Betley. As yet there are no fixed timings but we hope to be with you all before too long (Covid allowing!) We'd be grateful for your prayers as the Watson family prepare for the move. Many thanks, from, Tim, Clare, Evie, Lucie and Joshua Watson.'
