Fr John's Retirement:

Fr John Minns retired in April. We held a special Eucharist to celebrate his ministry as Priest in Charge from 1991-2018, on Sunday April 22nd. Pictures and other reminders of the occasion can be found on our Facebook page.

New Rector: Fr Alaric Lewis has taken up the post of Rector of the new benefice (which includes the parish of St George Tombland and the parish of St George Colegate).

Fr Alaric was formerly a priest in the Diocese of Europe serving as Chaplain of the Anglican Chaplaincy of Saint Andrew, Costa Del Sol East, Spain where he looked after four different parishes over a large geographical area.

Fr Alaric’s biography is available on his website at
