Building on the good foundations laid by The Revd Richard Bentley, my predecessor, with the aid of the many talented lay people of St Peter’s we have taken the worship and mission of the church forward in many ways for which I am profoundly grateful.
Everyone has “their time” in a role and I have enjoyed my time at Petersham .”
