This summer, we welcomed three new members of clergy to the Barnes Team Ministry and St Richard’s Ham.
The Revd James Hutchings has been appointed to the post of Team Rector of Barnes in the Deanery of Richmond and Barnes. James was the Team Rector of Littleham-cum-Exmouth with Lympstone, and Rural Dean of Aylesbeare, in the Diocese of Exeter.
Congratulations to the new Assistant Curate at St Michael’s, Fr Martin Calderbank (pictured above right with Rev Stephen Stavrou), who was ordained to the diaconate at Southwark Cathedral on Saturday 29th June 2019.
The congregation welcomed Martin at his first service, the Confirmation Mass, on Sunday 30th June.
