Fr Stephen retires

19 Jul 2021, midnight

On Sunday 18th July 2021, the St Barnabas congregation said a fond farewell to Fr Stephen Huggins, who has been the pastor for our parish for the last four years, initially as Associate Vicar, and then as Priest-in-Charge. Fr Stephen has brought a friendly and joyous calm to the church, and has gently instructed us with sermons, study courses and away days. We still hope to see him preach to us on occasion, so it is only au revoir, not adieu.

As the parish now enters an interregnum (vacancy), the Churchwardens take on more responsibility for the running of the church and parish.
